on Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity:
Here are three new agents actively building their client lists. New agents are a boon to writers. They are actively building their lists, and will go the extra mile for their clients.
Lisa Highton is interested in a wide variety of narrative fiction and non-fiction.
Jonathan Rosen represents Young Adult, Mysteries, Thrillers, Historical Fiction, Sports, Romantic Comedy, and anything with humor for that matter. He will always have an eye out for diverse voices, and in particular Jewish stories. In Non-Fiction, he is looking for Biographies and Memoirs, Pop Culture, Humor, Sports, and Journalism.
Tess Weitzner is primarily drawn to literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, horror, and middle grade, and especially that which is rooted in unreliable narrators, magical realism, interrogations of power and violence, reclamations of identity, and dark-as-night humor.
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.
