I would love to see diverse rep and marginalized authors play with their comfort tropes. Small towns, enemies to lovers, forced proximity, sports rivals, marriage of convenience. I don’t think tropes are ever overplayed, they just need a great hook and a great sense of craft

Adult: Narrative nonfiction/memoir about food, Southern culture, adventure, extreme sports, journeys, science/medicine, from perspectives we have not seen before/enough of & whose narratives tackle bigger-picture subjects alongside personal narratives.

Olympic-related #MSWL: A reminder that that I'd love more narrative nonfic/memoir by athletes or about extreme sports. I'm obsessed with stories about what the human body is capable of. I recently watched the doc It's Easy Until It's Not—I'd love stories about events like this!

The Olympics have reminded me. I always want GIRLS in sports. Especially in #MG. #YA okay too. Wacky teams are even better, like "the Breakaways". Maybe the kid isn't "good" but really likes it anyway? Just spitballin'. #mswl

I love sports of all kinds and the Olympics give me the opportunity to watch elite athletes in more obscure sports do their thing. #mswl #writingcommunity #amagenting #amwriting @Olympics @TeamUSA

Thought of another one for the #MSWL: I'm always looking for memoir/narrative nonfic about extreme sports, athletes, & adventure (think ALONE ON THE WALL, BORN TO RUN). Brought to you by me going nuts over the Olympic trials (Sha'Carri Richardson!!!).

Relatedly, I would love a book on CTE and traumatic brain injury, contact sports, capitalism, identity, and culture from an expert on the subject and/or a contact sport athlete (I'm looking at you, #DerbyTwitter). #MSWL

📚 More diverse, inclusive sport & competition stories! Send me entertaining stories that make palms sweat & hearts race & inspire us to get out & try something new. Underdog teams, determined solo athlete, and everything in between are fair game. So what counts? #MSWL

In adult nonfiction, I'm still looking for untold histories, memoirs with a big hook especially if they are extreme sports or adventure stories, pop science,  cookbooks, & culinary histories. Again, send me your weirds.
