Lauren is opening to queries on 4/1! Get ready! - Agent Trida US Lit


I open to queries on Friday 4/1! I have a full manuscript wishlist you can see on the #MSWL website, but here are the items I'm looking for in particular:

--Adult suspense & RomCom

--YA contemp w/ a BIG commercial hook

--MG fantasy

I look forward to hearing from you!

Jaymee Goh- Editor Tachyon Publications


Looking for:

secondary-world fantasy, always;

societal effects of technological developments;

soft apocalypses;

re-tellings / re-imagininings of myths and legends (particularly from Southeast Asia, but I’ll take anywhere but England/white America);

worlds where people with disabilities have other problems beyond infrastructural obstacles;

protagonists I can assume are queer by default;

family structures that refuse the nuclear family unit system;

economies that aren’t intense hyper-capitalism;

if you must have space oppression, I expect a lot of shiny things in recompense; 

characters who are specialists in a less glamorous field (e.g. geology)

love stories: asexual romance, polyamory, platonic best friends forever, found family

authors of colour writing back to their own communities;

low-stakes, chill stories.

Kayla Cichello - Agent at Upstart Crow Literary. Open to PB - YA.
