Bethany Fulk Hendrix @bethanyfulkHi #amquerying writers! I will be opening to submissions again on June 1st! I cannot wait to see all of your amazing stories in my inbox 🎉Here's what I'll be looking for:
Middle Grade: I'm really looking to build my MG list! I'm looking for a little bit of everything--fantasy, retellings, adventure stories, touches of magic, mysteries, spies!
My agent profile is finally up at MSWL! Check me out at:
If your novel is a (NOT HIGH FANTASY) retelling of myth or folklore, we might just be a match.

I’m particularly in the mood for astrology-inspired fantasy, courtly intrigue, a witchy romance, myth & fairytale retellings, sapphic romantasy, undercover assassins, life or death trials and anything dark academia...
4 - Queer fantasy, queer SF, queer dark academia, queer Gothic, queer roadtrips, queer retellings, queer… you get the gist.
Also some mythical retellings and / or adventures inspired by non-Western myths and legends for the middle grade market? #mswl
I'm still looking for my speculative retelling/reimagining of the life of Hatshepsut. #MSWL Just putting that after since I finally got to read "Iron Widow."
I’m a sucker for a retelling/reimagining. I represent at least 6 of them and I want more!!! #mswl
In fantasy: Anything with a fairy tale at the root of the story is fair game but also any retelling of a classic story is my jam. From Shakespeare to Spielberg, I love stories that take familiar characters and upends their world and everything we thought we knew about them. #mswl
In historical fiction, I’d prefer stories not set in Western Europe or the USA. Hidden histories and female-led retellings are also up my alley.
I would also love to see some retellings in my inbox, whether that be of classics or myths #MSWL
↬ Literary Fiction retellings ft. classic authors: Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Stoker, du Maurier, Austen, etc.
↬ Historical Fiction
↬ True Crime: well-researched + in the same vein as In Cold Blood

Specific Interests continued:
-Singers, music, musical theatre
-Pets (cats!!), esp. if the owner was hesitant at first
-Retellings (not necessarily of popular fairytales—love DON’T LOOK BACK by Lilliam Rivera)
-Characters who don’t want kids
Across categories/genres: #LGBTQ stories of all flavors, any retelling “but make it gay” is pretty much would be something I want to read always. #mswl
Closing submissions inbox on Friday.
#MSWL - cozy mysteries, YA or MG retellings, NF (see QM or PM for list), PB (can be author-only)
Stefanie Rossitto #MSWL: I would like to see a re-telling of HOLIDAY INN with modern-day, diverse characters!
I am very excited to find new writing talent this year, so if you happen to be submitting your manuscript, please do think of me. I am keen to find something transportive, evocative and voice-driven! 📚 madeleinemilburn.co.uk/agents/rachel-…
I'm still dying for a YA that deals with competitive cheerleading. And I would kill for a retelling (in some way or form) of Sugar and Spice #MSWL
I would love to see Egyptian, Roman, and Greek mythology retellings in my submissions #MSWL #manuscriptwishlist
Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL
