Emily only accepts submissions through her QueryManager page, which can be found here. This is the most up-to-date page to check for when Emily is accepting submissions or not.
Please note, if you have a graphic novel or illustrated work, please send a query through QueryManager and she will have you send the dummy or sample pages through another service, as QueryManager limits large files.
Wishlist: Emily maintains a ManuscriptWishList page on the official MSWL though it is not always the most up-to-date.
In general, Emily is looking for all types of books for young readers and the young at heart. In particular, she wants to foster the joy of reading in kids (so if your goal is to “teach kids stuff,” then she might not be the right fit for you).
In non-fiction, she is looking for non-fiction picture books (though only biographies of individuals who do not already have a book about them), interesting non-fiction for middle grade and young adult readers (particularly from podcasters, YouTubers and those who already have a platform), and select adult non-fiction.
Genres Represented: Middle Grade Fiction, Young Adult Fiction, Graphic Novels, Picture Books, Fantasy, Horror, Women’s Fiction, Science Fiction, Pop Culture and Humor
Emily Does Not Represent: Screenplays, Adult Poetry (ie not in a picture book), Genre Romance, Short stories, Erotica
