2 Agents Seeking Kidlit, SF/F, Horror, Thrillers and more

Updated 12/10/19

Here are two new agents expanding their client lists. Britt Siess is seeking Adult Fiction submissions in the Fantasy, Speculative, Horror, and Thriller genres. She's partial to feminist literature and anything based on a fairytale. In Middle Grade, she's seeking fantasy (does not have to be contemporary) and supernatural elements. Alice Williams represents children's literature in both fiction and nonfiction.

Always check the agency website before submitting. Agents may switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements can change.
