NPR @NPRThrowing thousands of baby puffins off a cliff is a yearly tradition for the people of Iceland's Westman Islands. It's part of what's known as "puffling season," and it's a crucial life-saving endeavor. n.pr/3SwR2c5
#MSWL MG environmental fiction/nonfiction. 🪶
"I am on the hunt for nonfiction in MG. Show me glimpses of history that haven't been taught to younger students before, collections of pieces, anthologies."
Hi book nerds 💜 Huzzah! My #MSWL is now officially live! Agented authors and creators, feel free to share this with your agent. Unfortunately for those in the query trenches, I'm unable to accept unagented submissions...I leave you with a catdog 🐱🐶
James McGowan @jmcgowanbks📣 I opened to queries for adult fiction and nonfiction. Here are some things that I can’t shut up about that have me excited to dig into new stories.

Heather Ray @HeatherRayBooksI wish I could accurately describe my kid's glee when he realized he might be able to use his burping skills to further the space program. "I want to be in an experiment!"
Have a 9-13yo who likes humor, bodily functions, and/or science? Hand them this book. @mary_roach pic.twitter.com/74yZWw0SXj
Would love to see more #NF humorous science books like this in my inbox! #MSWL
If you have funny, currently relevant, science nonfiction #kidlit or #A Adult lit, please message me for query details.
And, in the oddly specific: I’d really love a book about how amazing dogs are for our mental health and happiness. Could be a memoir? Could be a how to deal with the grief when we lose one of these precious friends. Had to say goodbye to my best girl this summer. Here's my gem:
@HCI_Books we’re always looking for books in self-help and psychology, health and wellness, inspiration, relationships, memoirs, mind/body/spirit integration. Here's my #MSWL coming at you, #agents and #writers! A thread on books I want:/
#MSWL: For #ChildrensBooks I'm only looking for Middle Grade and Young Adult right now. In the NF children's space I want STEAM-focused titles, anything whimsical and transportive, but has to be light on fantasy/ grounded fantasy (no #scifi for me).
#MSWL: Always on the hunt for prescriptive non-fiction with practical takeaways, #cookbooks with a unique angle or narratives centered on #culinary or #foodie life. Currently loving Mooncakes & Milk Bread by Kristina Cho. Want more southern, Asian-forward, indigenous cookbooks!
Jennifer Chen Tran @jenchentranFor adult #NonFiction , I want narrative or memoir (must have a platform) that sheds light on an unseen corner in society or history, esp. with a social justice bent. I want the next Braiding Sweetgrass, The New Jim Crow, Five Days at Memorial.
#MSWL: Check out @stuartpalley's book Into the Inferno for a good example of what I'm looking to rep in this space. Also: medical narratives, anything shedding light on the #healthcare industry and weaving in history. Books like Heart: A History by Sandeep Jauhur, for example.
Finally posting my #MSWL 1 week after joining @FolioLiterary & @FolioJr! Please RT to yr #writer friends who are actively #querying! My list will be primarily non-fiction focused, both in the adult and children's space. You can always check out my bio on the Folio webpage too.
Tessa Woodward @TessaofAvonleaHas someone written a novelization of this yet? If not, please write it for me! #mswl washingtonpost.com/history/2019/0…
Oh wow! I would read this in either fiction or narrative nonfiction. An epistolary format in fiction should be FABULOUS!!! #MSWL.
Note: I'm closed to queries, but if you have this EXACT thing, I would read it.
As mentioned above, I do also rep nonfiction and YA. Check out my complete MSWL here for more details on those categories publishersmarketplace.com/members/alyssa…, or visit my website alyssamaltese.com for more info.
And, I am very much still actively building my adult nonfiction list! Looking for books with platform backed by experience/professionals in self help, business (women in business!), parenting, psychology, pop science, and mind/body/spirit
