I'd love to see in my queries:

- Atmospheric, woodsy, lush horror like THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING (YA, A)
- Domestic/psychological thrillers by BIPOC authors (A)
- Scavenger hunts (MG, YA, A)
- Eerie spec fic in isolated settings (CATHERINE HOUSE, THE WATER CURE)

Query tip: research. You have the best shot of finding the right agent if you check out their #mswl before querying. Here's mine: adult or YA fiction or non, for fiction specifically rom com, hist, mystery, true crime, spec. Love strong female leads, diverse voices.

I'm looking for a fantastic and smart heist novel, whether set in a contemporary world or speculative. If it has multi-pov or a crew, SIGN ME UP.

One BIG #MSWL of mine going into 2021 is fiction that straddles the line between literary and speculative. If you have an adult MS that straddles these genres, I’d love to see it when I reopen in January

In MG, I want to see contemporary of all kinds, creepy/spooky stories, & again, grounded fantasy or speculative. In YA, I'd love to see more thriller, horror, Gothic, grounded fantasy or speculative, contemporary, rom-coms, & really lush literary fic.

When I reopen to queries in Jan., my wishlist is going to look different than it does now. In adult fic, I am really going to want to see upmarket fiction & book club fiction, literary fic, rom-coms, mystery, domestic & psychological thrillers, horror, & grounded speculative fic.

let’s unpack why teenage girls ask the same questions academics do in more accessible terms and get dragged through the mud

#mswl — this is everything I want in YA speculative fiction

also, perfect place to plug @ockaur’s forthcoming YA SF novel, RISE OF THE RED HAND, whose teen heroine asks alllll the uncomfortable questions about power and inequality—often with her fists 😉

All of which to say - I may do a *short* open subs window in January, but I will assess my workload this side of Christmas and make a decision then. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and I hope it helps to have transparency on the process twitter.com/elladkahn/stat…

Excited to say I'll be open to submissions again from 4th Jan - 28th Feb 2021! Looking for upmarket women's fic, speculative fic, crime/thrillers, and YA. I'm in the mood for feel-good books, characters I can root for, emotionally driven stories, immersive settings & imagination!

And last on the list, we are on the hunt for some lightly speculative novels. Think BLACK MIRROR in book form – something that shows us our world, but with a twist.

I'm also looking for more adult fantasy/speculative fiction that feels grounded, modern/contemporary, and has a strong millennial voice. #MSWL
