I'd like to submit here. But all I see under the Submissions section is a wishlist. Are there guidelines somewhere?

Q'd e to 7/18/22 115K literary as "genre-testing novel that may best be deemed humor and history at a literary level. It reads like inventive historical fiction on one narrative track, from 1865 onward, alongside the narrator's farcical travails in 2015. The point of departure is a speculative, alt-history premise . . ."

CNR 5/20/22 - At eight weeks, going to close this one out. Based on previous comments I could probably nudge but it seems nudges mostly just lead to quick rejections. :)

Thanks for contacting me about your work. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s quite a fit for me as an agent at this point. However, it's a terrific story and I'd encourage you to continue contacting other agents about the book, as I suspect it's just a matter of getting the material in front of enough people before you connect with someone who’ll be excited to represent it on your behalf.

And of course, I wish you the best of success with all your work going forward.

Since someone asked a question about submission guidelines to Mr. David Fugate, found this on publishers marketplace. His email is on his website: Hope this helps:
An email query is preferred and once requested, email submission of proposals and samples is preferred.
