Query Allegra at Ladderbird

Welcome! If you are here, it is because you are either a BIPOC spec fic writer, or a marginalized writer with one of my dream projects.

FIRSTLY, please read more about my #mswl here: allegramartschenko.com/agent
SECONDLY, if you are here with a dream project, please visit my mwsl link above so you can select which dream project it is in the genre section

—You can just address your query to "Allegra" without using a title.
—I am only open to novel-length speculative fiction in the Adult, Crossover, and YA space

Some of the questions below are optional—if you just don't want to fill them out that will have no bearing on my decision. I endeavor to make this form as pain free as possible, so please just include the basics.

Step 1. Tell us about the author

Fill in these author-related fields.

Have you ever been represented by a literary agent before?      

Step 2. Tell us about the book

Fill in these book-related fields.

This agent only represents the genres shown in this list. Selecting an inaccurate genre will result in a rejection. If your book's genre is not shown here, please go to QueryTracker for a list of agents who do represent your genre.
Enter the approximate WORD count of your book. Enter numbers only. Do not include any letters or special characters.

Is this book currently published or has it ever been published before?      

Enter your query letter for this book. (Tips for formatting and pasting text) Do NOT paste images into this field. Pasting large blocks of text can take several minutes. Please be patient.

(If your book is shorter than this (such as a picture book) please include the entire text.) Paste in the first 5 pages of your book, or your full book proposal if your book is non-fiction. (Tips for formatting and pasting text) Do NOT paste images into this field. Pasting large blocks of text can take several minutes. Please be patient.
