I am currently open to queries. 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 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. For a list of what I represent, what I am looking for, and a little about what I don't, please see here.
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.

You can also meet me in person! Here is a list of the upcoming conferences I'll be attending:
SCBWI NV Mentorship Kick-Off & New Year Conference, January 26-28, 2018
Kweli Color of Children's Literature Conference in NY, April 7, 2018
