Nonfiction

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Mar 8

Super, SUPER interested in books that explore women's history and tell me the stories left out of my school textbooks. Books like Margot Lee Shetterly's HIDDEN FIGURES, Denise Kiernan's THE GIRLS OF ATOMIC CITY, or Mallory O'Meara's THE LADY FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. #mswl

HISTORY: Super, long-time history nerd right here. I would love to see some projects like David Grann's KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON, Anna-Lisa Cox's THE BONE AND SINEW OF THE LAND, or David Randall's BLACK DEATH AT THE GOLDEN GATE. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Mar 8

So, if you have a project like Michael Twitty's THE COOKING GENE, John T. Edge's POTLIKKER PAPERS, Ronni Lundy's VICTUALS, Edward Lee's BUTTERMILK GRAFFITI, or Asha Gomez's MY TWO SOUTHS, send it! #mswl

Hello my nonfiction writing friends! I have a TON of #mswl tweets for you this morning, so buckle up.

First up, FOOD, because we've established how much I want to both eat it and read about it. I love food books that explore forgotten histories, take deep dives into one particular aspect, or that look at how food cultures intermingle and change one another. #mswl

Thank you @jamerrson for creating this beautiful art. Yes! I’m seeking suspense & women’s fiction, literary, upmarket, & nonfiction and desperate for more diverse voices #mswl

In the spirit of #WomensHistoryMonth I’m exercising this week to Brave Not Perfect by @reshmasaujani. Her journey from finance to an attempt at politics to founding @GirlsWhoCode is so empowering. Would love to see more NF like this for young readers! #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

"Very hungry to work on more LGBTQ+ YA novels and diverse, inclusive reads. I'd also love to see more YA non-fiction hit my inbox." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

And in non-fiction, I'm looking for cookbooks, essay collections, and memoir.

@nicole_soojung's memoir wasn't just my favorite memoir last year, it was one of my favorite books period.

@readandbreathe's upcoming book is a great example of "something I wish I worked on."

Good morning! It's March 1st and I'm officially open to queries again at @PSLiterary!

Here's my #MSWL on my website, and I'm going to tweet a little bit about what I'm looking for... let's go. ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/01/3…

Some more #nonfiction interests: millennials issues (don't send me books on how we've destroyed things for babyboomers, I honestly don't care), astrology, spirituality not connected to a specific religion, old theaters (I love these), 90's music, anything humor related #MSWL

Devin Ross @Devyross · Feb 27

I'm looking for more #nonfiction too, my interests are eclectic so here are a few: Whiskey, craft beer and home brewing, complex science written for the average person, fandom #MSWL

paige wheeler @pwheeler_agent · Feb 27

I'm hungry for a really, really good work of nonfiction focusing on productivity--with tips, tools, etc. What have you got? #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Feb 25

Pst. This Friday I open up to queries at @PSLiterary again.

I really want to find more genre-blending literary fiction, diverse + inclusive YA, quirky non-fiction, and lots more.

The full #MSWL is here! bit.ly/2GG1M7r

If you write about climate change or environmental protection in the teen/YA space, I'm the agent for you. I'm open to many genres here: YA memoir, narrative NF, trade NF, graphic. I'm ready to do my part to help save the planet! #mswl

I'm getting a lot of fiction queries related to this #mswl when I had requested nonfiction. I'm really mostly interested in trade nonfiction here. Off the top of my head, a good example would be a book (maybe graphic?) to the tune of: Ways You Can Fight Climate Change at Home.

On the adult nonfiction side, I would love to see more pop culture projects. #MSWL

"Non-fic like Jim Collins GOOD TO GREAT, Susan Cain's QUIET & Charles Duhigg's THE POWER OF HABIT.” @CurtisPSLA #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

"Nonfiction that merges pop culture, history, & feminism — like my client @SamMaggs’ books: THE FANGIRL’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, WONDER WOMEN, & GIRL SQUADS." @msmariavicente #MSWL mariavicente.com/representation/
