2 Literary Agents Looking for Fiction, MG, YA, New Adult Fiction and Narrative Nonfiction

Updated 4/8/20

These two agents are looking for clients. Pam Pho has a passion for adult genre fiction (no erotica) as well as MG, YA, and New Adult fiction. Mackenzie Brady Watson focuses on narrative non-fiction for all ages and select Young Adult fiction.

As always, go to the agency's website before sending your query. See which publishing houses they have worked with, what type of books they have represented. And don't forget to do a google search on the agency (and agent) to check for other authors' experiences. Remember: Agents may close their lists, and submission requirements can change.
