Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint which agents are open to submissions at any given time. So with that in mind, I’m creating some new vertical lists of agents seeking queries right now, as of early 2017.

This list is for women’s fiction.

All the agents listed below personally confirmed to me as of early 2017 that they are actively seeking women’s fiction novel submissions NOW. Some gave personal notes about their tastes while some did not. Good luck querying!

Notes: “Looking for women’s fiction with a literary bent, ideally with a social/cultural issue that necessitates a conversation. Unusual structures or concepts are welcome, and I’m open to a wide range of styles – with the intensity of feeling of Elena Ferrante or the irreverence of Maria Semple.”
