3 New Agents Actively Looking for Writers - Fantasy, Sci-fi, Literary Fiction, Nonfiction, Kidlit

Here are three new agents actively seeking clients. Lindsay Mealing (Emerald City Literary) is seeking science fiction, fantasy, and young adult. Gill McLay (Bath Literary Agency, UK) is interested in children's books. Christina Clifford (Union Literary) is looking for literary fiction and narrative nonfiction in the genres of historical biography, memoir, business, and science. Before you send your query, read the agency's website to make sure your work is a good fit.



Lindsay Mealing of Emerald City Literary

About Lindsay: Lindsay has been writing stories since she could first hold a pencil. It wasn’t until she sat down to edit a manuscript for the first time she realized her true love was not on the writing side of the publishing industry, but the business side. She began interning for Mandy at Emerald City Literary Agency in early 2015 and quickly realized agenting was what she wanted to do forever more. Lindsay is a self-proclaimed nerd, loving everything science fiction and fantasy – from epic tomes to gaming. She fell head over heels with the SFF genre when she read Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey (she even has Phedre’s marque tattooed on her back). Find her on Twitter: @lindsaymealing.

What she is seeking: Science fiction, fantasy, young adult.

How to submit: Send your query letter with ATTN: Lindsay in the subject to querymandy@emeraldcityliterary.com. Please paste the first five pages of your manuscript below your query letter.
