Allison Devereux of Mackenzie Wolf

About Allison: Allison Devereux is an agent and foreign rights co-manager. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and has previously worked at the Harry Ransom Center and Macmillan.

What she is seeking: Allison represents books across all genres, with a focus on narrative nonfiction, memoir, and cultural history. She is actively seeking journalistic examinations of progressive politics, science, art, pop culture, unique subcultures, natural history, technology, sports, and feminism. She loves stories that use a niche topic to explore larger truths about our culture, and anything with a convincing narrative voice or a great sense of humor. In fiction, Allison particularly loves literary and upmarket fiction featuring everyman characters, global settings, underrepresented voices, and unreliable or morally ambiguous narrators. She's drawn to stories set firmly in reality but that explore something fantastical, and psychologically adept narratives with a surreal or subversive bent. Allison also works with a growing list of illustrators and animators.

How to submit: To submit a project, please send a query letter along with a 50-page writing sample (for fiction) or a detailed proposal (for nonfiction) to queries@mwlit.com. Samples may be submitted as an attachment or embedded in the body of the email.
