New Year, New Agent Wishlist

A lot of fantastic querying writers out there have been visiting the blog and getting an idea for what I’m looking for through my blog pages and posts. It is always heart-warming for an agent to know that writers do their research.

Last year I posted my wishlist and this year I’ve updated it for you.

Here is my 2012 wishlist:

  • Contemporary YA
  • High Concept Picture Books
  • The ‘Book Club Book’
  • Commercial Literary Fiction
  • Pop Science and Pop Psychology Proposals
  • Women’s Fiction
  • Women’s Non-Fiction: health, nutrition, relationships
  • Platform Based Non-Fiction: must have a demonstrable expertise and a quantifiable market

If you have these, please send! Send submission emails to query@psliterary.com or find the P.S. Literary Agency’s submissions webpage here.

  1. Hi Carly! I wonder if you could define “Contemporary YA” for me? I’m working on something that I’m not sure how to categorize, and I think it might fall under that.

    Thanks! Love your blog :-)

    1. Hi Darci!

      Sure, I’d be happy to elaborate on contemporary YA. It is YA fiction that is set in the current time period and setting. Ie. no supernatural, paranormal, fantasy etc. “True to life” characters set in a recognizable place/time, but is all fictional–or as much as you want it to be.

      1. Ah ha!In that case I think mine would be more along the lines of “YA supernatural” fiction… I’ve got special powers and super heroes, so even though it’s set in the current time, it’s a bit more specific than just “contemporary”… am I correct in this assumption?
