8 Writing Conferences in January 2017

January is cold, dark, and dismal. What better way to warm up your writing fingers than with a cozy conference?

This month features conferences all over the US, from New Jersey to San Francisco. If you have a completed manuscript, there are conferences with pitch sessions, as well as the opportunity to informally chat with agents and editors. There are also workshops, readings, and discussions.

2 New Literary Agents Seeking Speculative Fiction, YA, Kidlit, Nonfiction and more

Updated 2/17/22

Here are two new agents seeking clients. Maximilian Ximenez (L. Perkins Agency) is actively pursuing clients for both fiction and nonfiction works. In fiction, he is acquiring science fiction, fantasy, horror, and thrillers, particularly cyberpunk and neo-noir as well as books with a uniquely deconstructive bent. For nonfiction, Maximilian is seeking popular science, true crime, and books pertaining to arts and trends in developing fields and cultures. Hannah Fergesen (KT Literary) is looking for young adult and middle-grade, as well as some select adult fiction.

Note: You can find dozens of new and established agents seeking clients here: Agents Seeking Clients

IMPORTANT: You should NEVER query an agent without checking the agency website first. Submission requirements change, and agents may close their lists, or switch agencies.



Maximilian Ximenez of L. Perkins Agency

About Maximilian: Maximilian Ximenez grew up within the New York publishing industry. Prior to joining the L. Perkins Agency, he worked at Blizzard Entertainment, creators of the popular Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo video game franchises. He is a strong believer in publishing and narrative as a central pillar of franchise and transmedia development.

What he is seeking: Maximilian is actively pursuing clients for both fiction and nonfiction works. In fiction, he is acquiring science fiction, fantasy, horror, and thrillers, particularly cyberpunk and neo-noir as well as books with a uniquely deconstructive bent. For nonfiction, Maximilian is seeking popular science, true crime, and books pertaining to arts and trends in developing fields and cultures.

How to submit: For submissions, please send an email to maximilian [at] lperkinsagency.com with your bio, a brief synopsis, and the first five pages of your book or novel in the body.



Hannah Fergesen of KT Literary

NO LONGER WORKING AS AN AGENT

About Hannah: Before settling in New York City, Hannah worked and went to school in Denver, where she obtained her degree in Writing for Film and Television. Opportunities in New York presented themselves before she could run off to LA, and she course-corrected her career toward publishing, a dream of hers since childhood. After stints as a remote intern for a well-known agent, a bookseller at the famous Books of Wonder, an intern at Soho Press, a literary assistant at Trident Media Group, and a freelance editor working with well-known authors, Hannah joined KT Literary in 2016. Hannah is a proud geek and TV junkie, with an all-consuming love for Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and anything created by Joss Whedon.

What she is seeking: I’m looking for young adult and middle-grade, as well as some select adult fiction.

In young adult and middle-grade, I’m looking for speculative and contemporary stories, running the gamut from fantasy, mystery, horror, and magical realism to family-oriented dramas, historical fiction, and stories dealing with contemporary issues, such as mental health or addiction. I’m also very interested in finding a good, twisty mystery or suspense. If it’s historical or has a speculative bent, even better. I am into contemporaries with light science fiction elements, as well as pure science fiction with politics and an edge, or a bold reimagining of another time. I’d love to see historical fiction in both young adult and middle-grade.

In adult, I want weird and/or lyrical fantasies and speculative mysteries. I’d also love something with a good twist, like DARK PLACES by Gillian Flynn (GONE GIRL less so, but the idea is the same).

How to submit: Send queries to hannahquery@ktliterary.com. The subject line of your email should include the word “Query” along with the title of your manuscript. Queries should not contain attachments. If we like your query, we’ll ask for the first five chapters and a complete synopsis. For our purposes, the synopsis should include the full plot of the book, including the conclusion.

29th Free “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest: Historical Fiction

Chuck Sambuccino, the editor of the Guide to Literary Agents, is running another "Dear Lucky Agent" contest. (There are two this month.) These contests allow writers to submit one page of their manuscript to be judged by an agent. The genre for this contest is historical fiction. There is no entry fee.

Winners of the contest have a more than good chance of getting representation. It's good to enter contests, not just because you may win one, but because they force you to write short summaries and synopses, and to polish your first few pages until they shine. These are usually the only pages an agent will see before making a decision.

The contest deadline is December 31, 2016CLICK HERE for more details.

For hundreds of free contests organized by month see: FREE CONTESTS.
_______________________

From the GLA blog:

Welcome to the 29th (free!) “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest on the GLA blog. This is a FREE recurring online contest with agent judges and super-cool prizes. Here’s the deal: With every contest, the details are essentially the same, but the niche itself changes—meaning each contest is focused around a specific category or two. If you’re writing historical fiction, then this 29th contest is for you! The contest is live through end of day, Saturday, Dec. 31, 2016. The contest is judged by agent Elise Erickson of the Harold Ober Agency.


WHY YOU SHOULD GET EXCITED
After a previous “Dear Lucky Agent” contest, the agent judge, Tamar Rydzinski (The Laura Dail Literary Agency), signed one of the three contest winners. After Tamar signed the writer, she went on to sell two of that writer’s books! How cool! These contests can’t be missed if you have an eligible submission.
HOW TO SUBMIT
E-mail entries to dearluckyagent29@gmail.com. Please paste all text. The only time to include attachments are when you have to attach images to show your social-media sharing (more info that below).
MEET YOUR (AWESOME) AGENT JUDGE!
screen-shot-2016-11-27-at-1-38-04-amElise Erickson of Harold Ober Associates graduated from St. Olaf College and the NYU Summer Publishing Institute in 2014, and spent several months interning at Penguin’s New American Library imprint, Folio Literary Management, and Susanna Lea Associates before taking on her current position at Harold Ober Associates. She grew up in both Florida and Minnesota, but is quickly learning to love city life in NYC. Elise is passionate about the role and responsibility of the literary agent, especially being an advocate for authors. In addition to working with books, she currently assists in selling Harold Ober’s TV, film, and subsidiary rights, and is actively building a client list of her own.
WHAT TO SUBMIT (AND OUR SOCIAL MEDIA REQUIREMENTS)
The first 150-300 words (i.e., your first double-spaced page) of your unpublished, completed historical fiction. You must include a contact e-mail address with your entry and use your real name. Also note your city of residence (i.e. — the city & state you live in, not your full address). Submit the title of the work and a logline (one-sentence description of the work) with each entry. Self-published memoirs are not eligible.
Please note: To be eligible to submit, you must mention this contest twice through any any social-media. Please provide a social-media link or Twitter handle or screenshot or blog post URL, etc., with your official e-mailed entry so the judge and I can verify eligibility. Some previous entrants could not be considered because they skipped this step! In short, simply spread the word twice through any means and give us a way to verify you did; a TinyURL for this link/contest for you to easily use is http://tinyurl.com/zodcsgo
An easy way to notify me of your sharing is to include my Twitter handle @chucksambuchino at the end of your mention(s) if using Twitter. If we’re friends on FB, tag me in the mention. If you are going to just use Twitter as your 2 entries, please wait one day between mentions to spread out the notices, instead of simply tweeting twice back to back. Thanks. (Please note that simply tweeting me does not count. You have to include the contest URL with your mention; that’s the point. And if you use Twitter, put my handle @chucksambuchino at the middle or the end, not at the very beginning of the tweet, or else the tweet will be invisible to others.)

2 New Literary Agents Seeking Clients NOW

Updated 9/4/19

Here are two new agents seeking clients. Serene Hakim is actively seeking young adult (all genres but in particular: science fiction and fantasy with a unique hook, realistic YA with diverse characters), upmarket women's fiction, and anything that gives voice to those whose voices are underrepresented and/or marginalized. Elizabeth Copps represents a wide range of genres from MG and YA, to adult contemporary + literary fiction, mystery, psychological thriller, women’s fiction, historical fiction, horror, and select nonfiction projects.

Note: For a list of dozens of new and established agents actively seeking clients see: Agents Seeking Clients

IMPORTANT: You should NEVER query an agent without checking the agency website first. Submission requirements change, and agents may close their lists, or switch agencies.



Serene Hakim of Ayesha Pande Literary

Prior to joining Ayesha Pande Literary, Serene Hakim worked at Laura Gross Literary Agency in Boston. She has also interned at David Godine Publisher and Chase Literary Agency. Serene holds an M.A. in French to English translation from NYU and a B.A. in French and Women’s Studies from the University of Kansas.

What she is seeking: Serene is actively seeking young adult (all genres but in particular: science fiction and fantasy with a unique hook, realistic YA with diverse characters), upmarket women's fiction, and anything that gives voice to those whose voices are underrepresented and/or marginalized. Stories dealing with the Middle East and the variety of immigrant experiences out there will definitely catch her eye. Intriguing female characters are also a huge plus. For nonfiction, she is seeking humorous and fascinating memoirs, and is particularly interested in LGBTQ and feminist issues.

How to Submit: To submit a query, please use the query form on the Ayesha Pande Literary website: https://www.pandeliterary.com/queries-pandeliterary.



Elizabeth Copps of Copps Literary Service

Elizabeth will re-open to queries on 9/6/21

About Elizabeth: In the summer of 2010, Elizabeth Copps did what any starry-eyed word nerd would do: she used her savings to move from Florida to New York City with the goal of doing something—anything—related to books.  When she was offered an internship with Maria Carvainis Agency, Inc., she discovered her passion for publishing. For the past decade, Elizabeth has dedicated herself to the care and management of author careers. Her business philosophy is simple: to foster relationships across the industry that are equitable, transparent, and long-lasting. She is excited to build Copps Literary Services and her list of award-winning and eclectic clients from her current home of Denver, Colorado.

What she is Seeking: I represent a wide range of genres from MG and YA, to adult contemporary + literary fiction, mystery, psychological thriller, women’s fiction, historical fiction, horror, and select nonfiction projects. I’m an equal fan of hilarious stories as well as dark, gritty and sinister reads.

How to Submit: See guidelines HERE.

Mega-List of Agents Looking for Memoirs

Updated 2/19/22

Memoirs are enjoying a resurgence in the publishing world. While biographies and personal histories have previously been reserved for well-known figures - political leaders, writers, artists - increasingly, this genre is opening up to ordinary people who simply have a story that might appeal to a wide readership.

Here is a list of 231 agents looking for memoirs. In most cases, these agents are also interested in representing other non-fiction. Read their submission requirements carefully. In the case of memoirs, agents frequently want a writing sample, just as they would for fiction. But, to be on the safe side, have an outline of your memoir prepared before you begin querying.

For other non-fiction, a proposal is required. The proposal is a detailed chapter-by-chapter breakdown of your book which must be submitted even if your book is complete. Make sure your bio reflects your expertise in your book's subject.

IMPORTANT: You should NEVER query an agent without checking the agency website first. Submission requirements change, and agents may close their lists, or switch agencies.

For a complete list of agents looking for writers in all genres see: Agents Seeking Clients.
