on Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity:
Here are six new literary agents actively building their client lists.
Lee O’Brien is looking for books with clear stakes and an immersive world, as well as anything with lots of atmosphere, magic, monsters, intrigue, or a plot full of twists and turns across all age categories.
Meridith Viguet is looking to represent adult “sweet spot” fiction that straddles the commercial and literary line as well as popular nonfiction, especially titles that examine life in rural areas in the US and around the world, and current, too-wild-to-be-true memoirs.
Paige Terlip is actively building her list of illustrators and is especially looking for author-illustrators and graphic novel illustrators.
Isabel Kaufman is seeking young adult fiction (all genres), science fiction/fantasy, romance, historical fiction, literary fiction, thrillers, horror, and graphic novels as well as narratives focused on travel, food, and the science of beauty.
Lindsay Guzzardo represents adult fiction.
Rukhsana Yasmin is focusing on non-fiction but she is also building a select fiction list, in particular, genre, literary and speculative fiction.
