contact beth

I am currently closed to unsolicited queries. When I reopen, here are some tips to consider before submitting:

Please send a query letter to querybeth[@]galltzacker[.]com with the first 2,000 words of your manuscript embedded in the email (no attachments).

Include the title and category/genre of your work in the subject line.

I love getting your queries, but please remember to only query me with projects that I might actually represent. This means: middle grade and young adult fiction and nonfiction, and only solicited adult submissions.

I do not expect or encourage exclusive queries. You should query other agencies simultaneously. However! Please only query one G&Z; agent at a time.

I cannot respond to snail mail queries—email is the best way to get your work in front of me. I try to respond within 4 weeks, but am usually quicker. Every query will get a response, so if you don’t hear back from me after 4 weeks has passed, please do resend your query or feel free to try another agent at my agency.

And I am on Twitter (@beth_phelan) and Instagram (@beth_phelan).
