Current wishlist on her Curtis Brown page:

Fiction: Contemporary thriller; books that explore friendship and group dynamics; books with a small-town weird feel; stories about hidden secrets from the past that suddenly erupt into the present; espionage; stories with a kick-ass heroine with a dark streak; gothic fiction (dark, sinister, and deathly)

Non-fiction: memoir, entertainment, lifestyle, parenting and humour.

Children, MG, YA: 'real-world' books with a streak of mythic; humor sprinkled in

I'm confused, are submissions closed for this agency? The website says they are open to submisions, but the submission portal says they are closed...

The "stood out from the many they receive" rejection is a form. I got the same one. Classy.
