Roll up, roll up, we have a few agent one-to-one slots left with some amazing new agents, and they might just have your name on them!
Are you out on submission? Have you been receiving blanket responses? Then you may need some tell-it-like-it-is feedback…straight from the horse’s mouth. Yes, in a literary world of overflowing slushpiles, our one-to-ones guarantee that an agent will read your submission and provide you with their professional opinion on your work. During a fifteen minute phone conversation, an agent from one of our participating literary agencies will provide you with advice on your query letter, synopsis and first 5,000 words of your manuscript. Pretty snazzy, right?
Available this September:
Meg Davis – Ki Literary Agency
Meg is the founder of the Ki Literary Agency and currently Chair of the Writers’ Organisations Advisory Group. She is also serving a third term on the committee of the Association of Authors’ Agents.
Meg is happy to consider manuscripts in all genres, and books in genre fiction. However, she is not a fan of fiction that is narrated by an animal.
Imogen Morrell – Greene & Heaton
Imogen is looking for immersive, brilliantly plotted upmarket and literary fiction with a twist — think Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid, Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, or Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff.
In non-fiction, she’s looking for proposals that find unexpected ways to talk about interesting things (architecture, food, nature, politics, history, identity) from academics, critics and journalists who are writing their specialist subject for trade publication.
She also accepts submissions for narrative non-fiction, essay writing and food writing.
Claire Harris (US) – PS LiteraryIn fiction Claire is looking for psychological thrillers; romcoms; contemporary fiction (bookclub); anything with a small town setting; cozy mysteries; mysteries in general; horror (light on the gore) and fiction with magical realism elements (must take place in our reality, just with a twist).
Nonfiction she is looking for lifestyle; true crime; self-help / advice; humor; gift books (cocktail, mocktail, craft, etc.); pop psychology; essay collections and cultural criticism.
Annakarin Klerfalk - Intersaga
Anna is drawn to complicated life stories, across all genres. She is looking for literary fiction that explores relationships and complex families. Commercial fiction with a humorous voice, that focuses on love, life and family relationships. YA and teen fiction (LGBT & underrepresented) ideally with a strong female leading character and/or topics around gender and life issues.
Rory Clarke – Andrew Nurnberg
Rory likes a wide range of non-fiction from popular science, history, literary and cultural criticism, current affairs and nature writing. Primarily compelling, original stories from emerging experts with surprising and new takes on a subject.
In fiction Rory likes voice-driven and story-led literary writing powered by strong ideas, setting and a command of form. This can also include upmarket crime and thrillers, as well as speculative fiction that brings something new to the genre. I’m especially keen to hear from writers from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds.
Amy Tannenbaum (US) – Jane Rotrosen
Amy Tannenbaum is a passionate author advocate with over 15 years of book industry experience. Amy represents clients who write across a variety of genres including women’s fiction, contemporary romance, thriller and psychological suspense.
