You are querying Danielle Burby | Nelson Literary Agency

As a reminder, please choose only one agent at Nelson Literary to query per project as we do actually share queries with each other. A pass from one agent is a pass from all of us for that particular project.

Danielle is looking for:
• Middle grade, young adult, graphic novels, women’s fiction, and select picture books
• Fresh, inclusive, intersectional narratives with an emphasis on diverse protagonists, whether LGBTQ+, BIPOC, disabled, etc.
• I am particularly drawn to: complex female characters, seaside novels, girls with swords, magical realism, LGBTQ+ love, sister stories, toxic friendships, feminist fairytales, social justice themes, folklore, creepy forests, complicated family dynamics, quirky adventures, protagonists who change systems and break rules, heartwarming love stories, whimsy.
• I welcome queries from all authors and am particularly passionate about advocating for writers with historically marginalized identities including sexuality, gender identity, race, ethnicity, and disability.
