“Non-Fiction by BIPOC food writers.” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
“Fandom books and other illustrated, geeky/pop culture non-fiction titles are my bread and butter.” @readbystephanie #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Agents and writers: I'd love to see more submissions in my inbox about abortion access & experiences. Book club fiction, historical fiction, even non-fiction. All countries/cultures/time periods. #amediting #MSWL
“A few of the [nonfiction] themes that I’m looking for include: Privacy; Big Tech vs. Government; Flexibility, Climate Change, and Infrastructure. Bonus points if you’re conveying an original idea through a counterintuitive angle.” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Matt Bell @mdbell79One of the side benefits of going to a state school is that you’ll probably never be tempted to write a whole insufferable novel about going there. It’s a real drawback of attending an Ivy.
Hi send me your campus novels set at mid-tier or otherwise decidedly non-elite institutions, thanks! Would also consider nonfiction taking a critical perspective on the value vs. real cost of prestige academia, for students and for society #MSWL
“Stories that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are themselves neurodivergent, both in fiction and non-fiction, Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
nonfiction writers, i'm open to queries again & especially want to see:
proposals by journalists/academics/critics/other experts on topics that i didn't know i didn't know enough about
“My favorite nonfiction titles are story-based. Think case studies that read like compelling tales. Just because a book explores serious themes doesn’t mean it shouldn’t also hook the reader from page one!” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
recipes that are inclusive, recipes that can be done w ingredients obtained from a food pantry.
#MG/#YA/#GN #NF: Field Guides (hiking, mushroom hunting, how-to, etc)

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeYay for @TheTobiasAgency #mswl day. I rep all things #kidlit and right now I am dying for a Ren Faire book or cosplay book. Passing the baton to @LaneHeymont for his MSWL twitter.com/KellyDHouse/st…

Hiya! It’s #mswl day @TheTobiasAgency! I rep #kidlit, PB-YA, F and NF. Full wishlist can be found via the link in my bio, but today I am craving laugh-out-loud funny MG and YA, any genre, just make me laugh! Bonus if the book can also make me tear up. Tagging @SoCalledYALife!

@Sarah_Nicolas--what are you looking for?
Lauren Bajek @laurenbajekIf you’re working on a book about abortion providers, DM me. Especially abortions provided outside the medical system, and abortion networks in the context of other radical organizing. Fiction or nonfiction.
Oh I forgot the magic tag. #MSWL for books about abortion providers and abortion provider networks. Fiction or nonfiction. Less Handmaid's Tale, more Jane Collective.
“Nonfiction on the history of tutelary colonialism and its effects on the present-day immigration crises and policies.” @ceciliaclyra #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
