My wishlist is pretty broad other than this, I just love it when authors have one or two things they're REALLY REALLY good at (world! character! plot! atmosphere!) and lean into it wholesale—if in doubt, try me, my response time on queries is about a week (5/5)
while the algorithm loves me—#amquerying writers I'm especially hungry for adult sff lately & will stay open to queries all year long.
Try me (querymanager.com/allegramartschenko) if you see something in my wishlist (allegramartschenko.com/agent) that calls to you!
A little #mswl thread (1/5)
Firstly, I know Querytracker says I'm closed but I am open! Just not quite open to absolutely everyone. Please query me (querymanager.com/AllegraMartsch…) if you are:
—A BIPOC spec fic writer
—A marginalized writer w/one of my dream projects (see my website)
Allegra Martschenko @AllegraMartschHello! Starting Monday May 1 I am changing my query policy. Within my genres/ages, I will remain open to:
—all BIPOC spec fic writers
—marginalized writers whose books fall into the category of one of my dream projects (see my website/MSWL: allegramartschenko.com/agent)
Reminder, as we go into the weekend! My query policy changes Monday, #MSWL
I can't look at #MoodPitch today 😞 but I'm going to list a couple random #mswl wants I've been thinking abt lately:
🍩 contemp sff in the vein of LIGHT FROM UNCOMMON STARS: gorgeous, moving, queer, making magic out of the ordinary
🌜 a ferocious, heart pounding love story
Happy #MSWL day! I represent authors in the Adult, YA, and crossover SFF space. I am always looking for sharp writing, punchy characters, and big emotions. ☺️ Query me!

I'm especially keen to work w/writers from marginalized groups & think about the way these fields intersect with gender/sexuality, race, indigenous studies, & more
Even if you're not writing in my areas, my DMs are open to publishing Qs #AcademicTwitter
