Query Caitlin McDonald
Thanks for your interest in querying me! For a detailed and current list of what I am looking for, please check out the #mswl tag on my website. As a general rule, I am always looking for quality science fiction and fantasy for adults and young adults, with an emphasis on compelling and diverse characters, unique concepts, and strong voices. If your manuscript is some form of speculative fiction but you don't see the exact subgenre available on the list, don't worry--I still want to see it! Just pick the closest option available. If your novel is straight crime, romance, historical, literary, or some other genre not listed and has NO speculative elements, then I am probably not the right agent for you.
To query, please fill out the form below with your basic information, your full query letter, your synopsis, and the first twenty pages of your manuscript. Not all fields are required. If I requested your submission at a conference or event, please indicate that in the "Referral" box. I try to respond to all queries within 90 days of receipt, but please be patient if it takes longer to receive a reply. I do review and respond to all queries.
