My Manuscript Wish List

I'm an assistant editor at Chronicle Books for the food & lifestyle team. I love projects that have a strong visual narrative and a humorous, edgy voice that is particularly aimed towards millennials/ young adults, especially young women.

Topics that I'm interested in:

  • Astrology/wicca
  • Cookbooks
  • Dating
  • Fashion
  • Food books - books about food but not necessarily is a recipe book
  • Pop culture for lifestyle topics

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be emailed to

Send your query letter and the first ten pages pasted into the body of your email to Please write "MSWL" in the subject line, so it does not get sent into the spam folder. Please no snail mail.


As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL’s educational sister company, we are now offering ten-minute e-meetings with a select group of our agents and editors to discuss your work, what you can do better–and how to maximize your chances of success in the submissions process. You’ll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call–and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our step-by-step guide to booking your meeting, a list of participating agents and editors–and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process.

Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you’ll see them bolded on the calendar below after clicking “Set Time Zone.”
