Nonfiction

Jordan Hamessley @thejordache · Jan 26

I’m also really hungry for science and math non-fiction in middle grade and YA. My picture book list is really strong in NF these days and I want older kids to be inspired by math and science, too! #mswl

I am really hungry for some non-fiction middle grade and YA in my queries and for the right topic (pop culture, feminism, theater/music/dance), I’m open to adult non-fiction projects. For ex: I’m an avid fan of @EggcellentPod, @WestWingWeekly, @GilmoreGuysShow, and #Cheer. #mswl

"I particularly enjoy nonfiction books in the following categories: pop culture, science, design, and lifestyle.” @msmariavicente mariavicente.com/representation #MSWL

#MSWL this gonna be weird but is anyone working on a narrative NF book about poisons that weren't used for poisons? Like the poison dresses?

I have a weird fascination those time of things. #mg #ya only

#mswl for my nonfiction writing friends:

*I'm currently devouring Patrick Radden Keefe's SAY NOTHING & would love to find a book in this vein. History or history / true crime that reads like a thriller.

*PopScience that takes a deep dive into a subject. Think SPYING ON WHALES.

Books that investigate class, race, or identity in America. Deirdre Mask's THE ADDRESS BOOK looks at these constructs from an original and fascinating angle.

Always books on books, art, or material culture. I'm itching to read Kassia St. Clair's THE GOLDEN THREAD. #mswl

When you stumble across an ad for @norsemeat upcoming releases from @familiustalk in the latest @publisherswkly! Having a baby? This one is for you! And now I’m off to find more charming gift nonfiction to add to my list #mswl ift.tt/2NUl7n7

Amy Elizabeth @amylizbishop · Jan 23

For nonfiction:
*cultural criticism a la Jia Tolentino (strong platform a must)
*historical nonfiction like SAY NOTHING or MIDNIGHT IN CHERNOBYL
*pop science/psychology

The Wall Street Journal @WSJ

The children of the college admissions scandal grapple with the fallout. “I don’t know who you are anymore, mom.” on.wsj.com/2RpMF4R

This is a book I'd like to see. Parents who go too far because they think they're protecting their kids. This is both fiction and nonfiction depending on your take. #mswl

“With non-fiction I want to learn something by accident, tell me a good story in a fun new way that keeps me thinking. I really enjoyed Carlo Rovelli’s SIX BRIEF LESSONS ON PHYSICS.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

And now’s a good a time as any to talk about my #MSWL !

I’m looking for adult SciFi and Fantasy stories—bring me into your worlds! I’m also open to any graphic works: graphic memoirs, graphic novels, or other graphic nonfiction.

I’m open to queries, so bring it on!

Alexandra Weiss @akaweiss · Jan 13

When I open up to queries next month, I'd love to see more #kidlit stories that tackle climate change and feature real, innovative solutions. Ideally nonfiction but open to fiction as well. Bonus points if it's a graphic novel. #mswl

I'm building out the adult side of my list in 2020, so if you have an exciting, fresh #romance, #WomensFiction, #cozymystery, #thriller, #suspense, or narrative #nonfiction project, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME!!! #mswl
