Here are five literary agents actively building their client lists.
The Feldstein Agency (UK) is seeking adult fiction (excluding romance, historical fiction, and science fiction and fantasy) and adult non-fiction.
D. Ann Williams represents Middle Grade and Young Adult novels and selected PB.
Susan Finesman works with a broad range of genres, including fiction, cookbooks, and lifestyle.
Laurie Robertson (UK) is looking for literary and upmarket commercial fiction as well as memoirs and social commentaries.
Lauren Wendelken is passionate about nonfiction books with a social mission, or those which aim to make science accessible to all, as well as upmarket commercial fiction, literary fiction, and speculative fiction.
Always check the agency website and agent bio before submitting. Agents can switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements can change.
NOTE: Don’t submit to two agents at the same agency simultaneously. If one rejects you, you may then submit to another.
