Literary Agent @TransLitAgency // I first came to Chicago on the trail of my father's killers
Brenna English✨Loeb @benglishhhVery excited to announce that I'm reopening to fiction queries for the month of November! As always, I only use querymanager for submissions (link is here: QueryManager.com/1496) and all email submissions will be deleted without being read. A quick #mswl thread:
A couple things that I am NOT the right agent for: prescriptive NF, memoir, thrillers about the CIA or the military, scifi and fantasy where all of the characters are very inhuman (think dragons or beetle aliens etc) and people with wings (I'm sorry, I just don't get it)
Brenna English✨Loeb @benglishhh📢 I am reopening to NONFICTION queries! I am particularly looking for nature writing, sports journalism and anything with a sociological bent. If you are an expert in your field and have something to say, hit me up! Having a proposal for me to review is best. #mswl
bog bodies, the age of sail, westerns (centering BIPOC and/or queer characters only please), stories about sports teams (that are maybe haunted??), gothic romances, medieval pilgrimages and any combination thereof!
Overall I'm looking for mysteries (cozy or not), adult and ya romcoms, fantasy, thriller, sci fi and horror, but here are a few concepts and ideas that I'm specifically interested in lately:
Brenna English✨Loeb @benglishhhI only accept queries through querymanager, follow the link to submit: QueryManager.com/1496
Forgot to add: I'm also interested in pop culture histories, especially if they're about events and people that are unknown today but who had a widespread impact at the time and whose influence is still felt today, however unknowingly #mswl

Brenna “ACAB” English✨Loeb @benglishhhHello sweet writers! I will be closing to queries at the end of the month, so if you were planning on submitting to me (via query manager, I delete things that come into my inbox unrequested) this is your metaphorical five minute warning!
I'll be updating this thread over the next few days with #mswl thoughts and ideas as they occur to me, and I'll start with saying that if you have a western, especially a historical one featuring queer and/or BIPOC characters, please hit me up!
In honor of reopening to queries, I thought I’d list a few things I’d love to see: a mystery series set on Hawaii, westerns (esp with some kind of twist), and speculative fiction set in the Pacific Northwest #MSWL
Please send me sci-fi/fantasy/mystery/thrillers, ya or adult, especially those that are character driven or investigate genre tropes
I’m also a sucker for anything with a strong environment, either literally or figuratively
