4 Agents Seeking Nonfiction

Here are four agents seeking nonfiction. Georgia Frances King is interested in nonfiction books about emerging science and technology, futurism, design, culture, and the arts, and supporting underrepresented voices. Anna Petkovich is interested in wellness, personal development, narrative nonfiction, journalists and podcasters with big ideas, and women writing from a faith-based perspective. Shannon O'Neill seeks nonfiction books that inform, intrigue, and inspire: areas of special interest include current affairs, popular science, history, memoir, and psychology. Doug Young's  range of interests is broad – including (but not limited to) history, science and politics, memoir and the occasional off-the-wall novel.
