A Profile 3

Aoife Lennon-Ritchie is looking for commercial and literary fiction, smart speculative fiction, and narrative non-fiction. A strong point of view and a compelling, pacy story are essential. Underrepresented voices preferred.
Regretfully, no poetry, no short stories, no rhyming children’s books, and no unsolicited film scripts.

If you would like to contact Aoife (pronounced Eefa) about your work, please first read our submission guidelines here.
