We're interested in new, fresh, and innovative work in young adult and adult fiction for most genres. We enjoy discovering emerging writers and also working with more established authors interested in growing their platform.

We get especially excited for genre-defying work and characters we can’t stop caring about, debut fiction, and diverse #ownvoices.
