2 Literary Agents Seeking Clients Now

These two agents are looking for writers. As always, take a tour of the agency's website before submitting. Check out the authors they have represented and which publishing houses they have worked with.

About Mary: Mary joined Sterling Lord Literistic in 2006 after receiving her MFA in Fiction from Columbia University. Born and raised in Nebraska, Mary received her BA in Psychology and English from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. She now lives in Brooklyn. Find her on Twitter: @MaryKrienke.

What she is looking for: Mary represents literary fiction, creative nonfiction, and realistic YA that pays close attention to craft and voice. She is especially drawn to new and emerging writers who seek to push boundaries of form and content, and she responds most strongly to writing that reaches great emotional and psychological depths. She is equally interested in work that illuminates through humor or by playing with genre. Her other interests include psychology, art, and design.

How to submit If submitting fiction, please send a synopsis and the first three chapters or a 50-page sample. If submitting non-fiction, send a detailed proposal. The queries should be sent to info [at] with “Attn: Mary Krienke” in the email subject line. Cover letters should be in the body of the email but send the actual submission as a Word document attachment.


About Renee: Several years in the editorial department at Random House’s Colorado division provided Renee with the opportunity to work with bestselling and debut authors alike. After leaving Random House, she came to KT Literary in early 2013 to cultivate her passion for YA literature. Drawing on her editorial experience, she loves digging into client manuscripts and helping authors shape the best story possible. You can follow her on twitter @Renee_Nyen.

What she is looking for: Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction. "I'm always interested in YA historical fiction, mystery, sci-fi, and thrillers, but genre is not as important to me as strong prose and compelling characters."

How to submit: Please submit a query letter with the first three pages of your manuscript pasted in the email to queries (at) If she likes your query, she’ll ask for the first five chapters and a complete synopsis. The synopsis should include the full plot of the book including the conclusion.

    1. Esther, to find an agent who is interested in memoirs, go here:
      Scroll down on "nonfiction genre" until you see "memoir." Select "memoir" then click on "quick search." All the agents interested in publishing memoirs will pop up. Send a query letter to every one of them.
