I’m always excited to see strong nonfiction proposals in my inbox. Pop culture, environmental science, history, occult, and lifestyle. Illustrated projects. Essays written by modern journalists. #MSWL

Illustrated graphic novels and graphic nonfiction by individual author/illustrators. MG, YA, Adult. The art needs to cleverly utilize the comics storytelling format. I’m not looking at script-only submissions at the moment. #MSWL

this is maybe a little specific but i'd really love to find some historical fiction or nonfiction about the AIDS epidemic and the activism / community care / political radicalism that organized around it/as a result of it #mswl

I am passionate about representing under or misrepresented voices and stories that contribute to a larger cultural conversation whether explicitly (e.g., a nonfiction title on social justice) or subtly (a comedy of manners about a mixed-raced Latinx family)…

The human brain is an endless source of fascination. I am hungry for nonfiction proposals with a neuroscience bent, particularly titles exploring the nexus between neuroscience and other fields, e.g., neuropsychology, neurosociology, neuropharmacology, neuronutrition, etc.

My taste in nonfiction is eclectic: no title is too serious or too accessible. I am hungry for original, expert-driven argumentative nonfiction that offers a clear paradigm shift to the reader (e.g., reader will pick up the book thinking X and will leave the book thinking Y).

NONFICTION: I am open to most categories, across the spectrum, including psychology, history, current affairs, science, politics, narrative journalism, nature and the environment, wellness, spirituality, business and economics, mathematics, parenting, lifestyle, and pop culture.

MEMOIR: exists at the intersection of fic and nonfic, i.e., good memoir reads like a novel. (See reviews of your fave memoir and be surprised at how many ppl didn’t know it was a real story!) I welcome both proposals with sample chapters or full manuscripts from memoirists.

A few #mswl bits I'll be on the hunt for in 2023: fun mystery/crime (think Finlay Donovan or Sunshine Vicram), horror (Stephen Graham Jones, Grady Hendrix), journalistic + narrative nonfiction (Patrick Radden Keefe, Jane Mayer, Erik Larson), and pop science (Brusatte, Imbler)!

… deep MG with a strong message; sweeping YA fantasy; women’s fiction with characters I’d kill for; banter-filled contemporary romance; and meaningful and well-written nonfiction for any age. They’ll fill in some gaps on my list! #MSWL

Still looking for creators writing abolitionist works - been thinking a lot about what I'd like to represent in the adult and children's nonfiction space, and talking about inadequacies of our court and prison systems is very important to me as a human #mswl
