I am ALWAYS on the lookout for exciting nonfiction projects. Really looking for narrative nonfiction about science, pop culture, and history. Not looking for memoir, (unless you are a well known musician or member of a well known band 😁😎). #MSWL

Nonfiction from experts in these fields: entertainment, science, medicine, nature, lifestyle, or home and business organization, the most significant factor being cultural and global impact (should have published works in journals/periodicals; a mailing or substack) #MSWL

WRITERS: I will be closing to queries on June 8th-so that I can catch up on submissions and focus on client manuscripts. As a reminder, I'm looking for YA/MG/PB and Adult and Kids NF. Polish and send those queries by 6/8 or hang on to them until later in the summer. Thanks!

I am open to queries! I need to prioritize current authors, so right now there are very specific types of books that I will be paying closer attention to.

Submission instructions are at dunhamlit.com, and this graphic will hopefully also help you plan when to query me.

I'm also looking for non-fiction projects in the areas of current events, true crime, science, history, narrative non-fiction, sports, politics, health & nutrition(I'd love a big brain book).2/

#MSWL : I would love to represent a non-fiction book on the absolute epidemic of ghosting - why it’s happening & what it means for us all on an individual & societal level. If it’s already out there, please point me in the right direction because this subject is fascinating to me!

WRITERS! New #MSWL w/ a few changes. Still looking for Adult NF (lifestyle, parenting, sports, current events, etc) and YA/MG/PB, but expanding YA/MG to fantasy and still including dystopian/sci-fi/horror/contemporary. Make me laugh, make me sob! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/shari-maurer/

&/or: More broadly, a project about the weird culture/history of ultramarathons altogether! Would so love for a sports/outdoors writer to pitch me this. #MSWL

I've said this before, but I've been thinking about it a lot in light of the first woman finisher, #MSWL : A dream nonfiction project of mine is a book about the Barkley Marathons that is as Tennessee-spirited & compelling as the '14 "The Race That Eats Its Young" doc.

I also want non-fiction on a variety of topics including (but not limited to) love, relationships, popular culture, politics and history. Books that make complicated ideas more accessible. Also very much on the hunt for cookery and food books. 🥘🧑‍🍳

Story is key to the books I enjoy; I’m always looking for a plot to drive me through a novel and I love NF that reads almost like a story at the same time as it educates and informs. It’s also super important to me to work with authors from a wide variety of backgrounds.
