Tamar Rydzinski

If that sounds like your manuscript, please send a short description, short bio, and 5-10 pages of text pasted into the body of the email. I do not open attachments.

Jessica Sinsheimer

JESSICA IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO QUERIES

Jessica is always on the lookout for new writers, she is most excited about finding YA, MG, upmarket genre fiction (especially women’s fiction, psychological thrillers, and SF/F that gives us insight into both fictional worlds and this one) and—on the nonfiction side—psychology, self-help, cookbooks, narrative nonfiction, and works that speak to life in the twenty-first century. She especially likes highbrow sentences with lowbrow content, beautiful descriptions of scary situations, smart and nerdy protagonists, underrepresented characters in positions of power, and justified acts of bravery. Please check out Manuscript Wish List for more.

If that sounds like your manuscript, please send a short description, short bio, and 5-10 pages of text pasted into the body of the email. I do not open attachments.
