Referred to Erin from within the agency: 9/10/22
Queried: 11.28.22 (wasn't sure if I was supposed to make a separate query or not after the referral)
MG Muslim/Asian Fantasy 37k
R&R: 12.3.22 (sent 1.9.23, @41k)
Full Req: 1.28.23 (sent 1.29.23)
R&R: 3.3.23

(She was super kind in asking to read my ms and she was on my list to query before I realized she closed to non-refs, so I feel like this is my chance!)

According to a tweet from 1/9/23: "I've re-opened my Query Mgr for 2023. Note that 1) I am not opening to picture book subs, b/c that side of my list is full; and 2) I don't take cold queries in order to manage the volume (see QM page for deets)--HOWEVER (exception/#MSWL/QM link in next tweet)... I am so hungry for immersive, beautifully written, non-European YA fantasy, and for cozy/slice-of-life SFF for MG/YA (prose or graphic novel), that for now I will allow queriers for these genres to bypass my usual requirements. #MSWL"
