4 Agents Seeking Screenplays, Memoir, Kidlit, YA, Literary Fiction, Nonfiction, Speculative Fiction and more

Here are four literary agents actively seeking clients. All work with established agencies with good track records.

Tessa Shaffer is looking for multi-POV stories, YA, middle grade, inspirational memoirs, non-fiction, narrative non-fiction, family sagas with lots of secrets, time travel, and anything universally cosmic/spiritual that is also strongly grounded in reality. Screenplays in the following genres: Comedy, Dramedy, Family, Romantic Comedy, TV—half hour, TV—one hour.

Millie Hoskins wants fiction - commercial and literary- and narrative non-fiction of most genres, excluding SFF. Cait Hoyt is interested in memoir, collections of essays, inspirational non-fiction, middle grade and children’s picture books.

Maria Bell is drawn to adult literary fiction and YA that break conventions in form, voice and character. In both fiction and nonfiction, she’s partial to stories involving the natural world, queer identities, baseball, and all those that grapple with conflicts and truths from which most of us instinctively distance ourselves.

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

NOTEDon't submit to two agents at the same agency simultaneously. If one rejects you, you may then submit to another.
