Savannah Brooks of Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency

Savannah Brooks joined the Jennifer De Chiara team in 2018, after interning for a year and a half. She's an MFA candidate at Hamline University focusing in creative nonfiction as well as an editor at Red Bird Chapbooks, a teaching artist at the Loft Literary Center, and a reader for multiple literary magazines. Her own creative work has been publishing in Hobart, Lime Hawk, and Every Writer's Resource, among others. When not immersed in the world of words, she can be found on her bike, at a dive bar, or lounging at one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes. She lives in the most beautiful literary capital: Saint Paul.

What she is looking for: "I'd love to bring more nonfiction into this world, especially topic-driven books/essays such as those written by the likes of Mary Roach, Leslie Jamison, Michelle McNamara, Malcolm Gladwell, and Bill Bryson—anything that keeps my curious mind engaged and wanting more. I'm also interested in memoir that will inspire generations to come.

For fiction, I'm interested in contemporary/literary novels/stories that are relevant to culture and focus on themes and issues that impact our daily lives. I would love to hear more from marginalized voices, regardless of whether or not marginalization is a central theme.

For YA, I'm especially interested in books that focus on friendship, conflicting identity, and the theme of truth. Show me variations in race, sexuality, gender, dis/ability, and ethnicity without that difference being a point of contention, and I'll be thrilled."

How to submit: Submit your query and the first 20 pages of your manuscript via QueryMe.Online/SavannahBrooks.
