Another lovely quote, from Flannery O'Connor: "Conviction without experience makes for harshness." #MSWL I'd love to find non-fiction that struggles deeply to internalize people's experiences before it comments on it--to do deeply ethnographic work, so as to prevent judgement.

I'd love to see more nonfiction with a strong platform that is not memoir. I love quirky/hidden histories with a really compelling hook, biographies of people who haven't gotten enough attention, or even a novel take on creating a better economic system. #mswl

I will always, always geek out over all kinds of #archaeology. Maritime archaeology? Yep. Experimental archaeology? Definitely. If you're working on a nonfiction book in any subdiscipline, I will always want to see it. #mswl

"LGBTQ+ non-fiction that tackles reproduction topics, explores gender nonconformity, relationships, etc. I'm looking for interesting angles!" @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

On to @EmF1nn, who's hunting for love stories (platonic/romantic/big messy families); gorgeous writing with page-turning plot; high concept fiction with an arresting premise and characters to do it justice; immersive, cross-genre narrative non-fiction... bit.ly/3bnKerI

Next, @AgentSophieL, who wants a beautifully written love story heart warming and heart breaking in equal measure, a voice driven literary novel that speaks to us now and narrative nonfiction/memoir that offers up a window to another place/moment. More at bit.ly/3bq1wEK

Idk who's been checking in the #MSWL tweets, but just putting it out there, for anyone who's researching and building agent lists: bit.ly/39h6wKf. I will be re-opening to queries on 05/01, and want adult and YA fiction, and non-fiction. Getting there!

Actually a YA NF about wealth and economics and poverty and class in America would be GREAT #MSWL

Are you writing a feel good novel or non-fiction? That will entertain, let readers mentally escape the Corona crisis and feel positive about the world?

I find that my NF wants leans alot towards the academic, so maybe a book with a lens of counter-culture. But make it teen. #MSWL

I am still very much on the hunt from MG and YA non-fiction! I am always on the hunt for great queer books of all ages and I would love to add some more queer illustrators to my list! #MSWL

I started THE RADIUM GIRLS right before this whole business began, which has been weird, but wow, what a stunning, horrifying book. It will enrage, then enrage you more that workers are similarly fighting for humane rights 100 years later. (Also, #MSWL: nonfiction like this.)
