Submit a Query to Chelsea Eberly | The Greenhouse Literary Agency

Thank you for thinking of me for your work. To learn more about what I'm seeking to represent, please visit my page on the Publishers Marketplace website.

In short, I am looking for middle grade, young adult, graphic novelists, illustrators who write picture books, and upmarket women's fiction. I welcome queries from BIPOC authors and illustrators as well as those marginalized identities that include sexuality, gender identity, and disability.

I gravitate toward high-concept stories with literary ambition. Books that stir emotions and have something to say. If you think we'd be a good fit, please fill out the form below. Graphic novelists and picture book illustrators can enter 1 for their word count. Nonfiction proposal writers can enter the approximate word count for the final project. (Do not stress about word count.)

Thank you, I look forward to reading your work!

I'm thrilled that you are submitting your work to me after the Pitch Wars showcase. Your work stood out, and I'm excited to consider it. Thank you!
