I’m currently closed to submissions as I work through a backlog of subs in my inbox. For those of you waiting to hear back on a submission, please know that my usual response times are delayed. You can read more about this here. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
I am seeking commercial and upmarket fiction ranging from middle grade to adult. I accept submissions from all ages/countries/abilities, as long as it is written in or translated into the English language.
Please use my submission form to submit.* This will ensure you receive a reply, and likely a quick one. I try my best to read and respond to initial queries within a few days, sometimes hours. If you have not heard back from me in a week or two, it means I have set aside your submission for further consideration. If you are confused by the form, click here for more information.
Partial response times can take up to 3-4 months sometimes longer. I try not to keep partials longer than 6 months.
Full response times can take 6-8 months. I try not to keep anything longer than a year. I know this is a frustrating amount of time, read my post on why this happens here. Feel comfortable nudging me if you get anxious.
What I am seeking is constantly evolving, so if you’re not sure and it’s fiction and falls within the age ranges, query me!
I’m currently extremely interested in whimsical/humorous/poignant middle grade and weird/surreal/contemporary adult fiction. For a detailed wishlist you can visit my MSWL profile.
Please note I do not represent short story collections, memoirs, picture books, or non-fiction. I am also not interested in books that have already been self-published (although I’m happy to consider your next unpublished work).
I will auto-reject the following:
- Stories that promote racism, sexism, bigotry of any kind
- Animal cruelty
- Rape as a plot device
If you have questions about the submission form, you can read further clarification here.

Best of luck!
