Nonfiction

Amy Elizabeth @amylizbishop · Jan 8

Also, please, as ever: any "big think" nonfiction. I'm fascinated by investigative journalism (I loved DREAMLAND by Sam Quinones); tech, pop science, pop psychology, and anything with a feminist lens (currently reading GOOD AND MAD by Rebecca Traister & loving it). #MSWL

Do I need to remind everyone that I have HUGE #MSWL for MG, YA, and adult fiction and nonfiction by Islander authors?! Whatever island, fam. Just send it.

(agent #mswl continued)
-memoirs or close narrative nonfiction showcasing underrepresented experiences and unique perspectives
-middle grade contemporary with a Judy Blume vibe (fin, for now!)

Lisa Yoskowitz @LisaYoskowitz · Jan 7

(Agent novel and nonfic #mswl continued)
-Stories that show what it is to be part of multiple communities, (bonus pts for dating misadventures)
-a coming of age memoir that reads like Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, or Nina LaCour (2/3)

Lisa Yoskowitz @LisaYoskowitz · Jan 7

Agent friends, my #mswl is overflowing! Please think of me in 2019 for exciting new:
-memoirs that bring to mind a YA Educated—delving deep into an author’s journey through and/or out of an insular community
-illustrated or graphic novel middle grade nonfiction or memoir (1/3)

Adult narrative NF: Topics include history, music, sports, popular science, business, pop culture. Anything new and newsworthy that can support a book-length narrative. #MSWL

YA: Much the same as MG--humor, realistic teen stories, #ownvoices, adventure, sci-fi. Also, love a good teen romance, horror, mystery, but not super-dark.

Children's NF at all levels: curriculum tie-ins, PB bios, multicultural history, science, sports, pop culture.

Happy New Year! For 2019, I thought I'd throw out some #MSWL ideas for writers. Broadly, I'm looking for all kinds of picture books by author/illustrators, MG, YA, Childrens' NF, Adult Narrative NF, and adult Lit Fiction. Details thread follows:

#MSWL. Just finished MAID and would love to find some narrative nonfiction that celebrates underrepresented voices, especially women, triumphing over tremendous odds be they physical, financial and/or mental.

Replying to @bookendslit

My 2019 goal is more nonfiction. Bring me your food histories, social histories, material culture proposals, true crime projects, gimme all of 'em. Basically, if it's nonfiction, I wanna see it. #mswl

I’d be ecstatic to find more nonfiction for any age. I particularly swoon for memoirs, popular history, social commentary, and pop culture. Recent loves: Laymon’s Heavy, Chee’s How to Write an Autobiographical Novel, Westover’s Educated. #MSWL

I'm also opening to chapter book fiction and non-fiction for the trade market this year (though having to be very selective about it!) #mswl

Tracy WANTS A NAP Marchini @TracyMarchini · Jan 1

I'd be interested to see a YA nonfiction guide to money that acknowledges the gig economy, high cost of secondary education, lack of pensions, etc. How can today's teens/late millennials prepare for a much different financial reality than previous generations? #mswl

Tracy WANTS A NAP Marchini @TracyMarchini · Jan 1

In YA nonfiction, I'd be interested to see some guides to activism (including eco and political activism) written for teens from somebody with a solid platform. #mswl

Tracy WANTS A NAP Marchini @TracyMarchini · Jan 1

This year, I'd love to see more trade non-fiction for children and teens that goes beyond a traditional biography! Show me science, history, cultural movements, our planet, etc. in ways I haven't seen before! (bonus points if it's a graphic novel!) #NonFiction #pb #mg #ya #mswl

Tracy WANTS A NAP Marchini @TracyMarchini · Jan 1

I've reopened to queries and represent fiction, non-fiction and illustration for children and teens! (Sorry, I don't represent works for adults, but a lot of my lovely @bookendslit colleagues do!)

You can query me at queryme.online/tmarchini #mswl #amquerying

A Woman Reading @AWomanReading · 22 Dec 2018

I'd really love to find non-fiction on how to celebrate a "no-presents" Christmas. A practical guide + personal experiences. Who has written this? #MSWL
