Update: As of fall 2013, Becky has left agenting.
Do not query her.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Becky Vinter of FinePrint Literary Management) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Becky: Becky Vinter began her career in publishing at the Feminist Press in 2006, before moving to NAL/Penguin, where she edited commercial women’s fiction. She joined FinePrint Literary Management in 2011 and is currently looking for a range of both fiction and nonfiction projects. Becky grew up in London and earned her BA in English Literature from the University of Leeds. She now lives in Brooklyn.
She is seeking: Becky likes the whole spectrum of women’s fiction, from literary to “bookclub” to romance and mysteries. She is also in the market for YA fiction with strong female protagonists. In nonfiction, she likes well-crafted narrative nonfiction, including memoir, current events, travel, pop science, wellness, yoga and food.
How to submit: (Becky has left agenting as of 2013. Do not query her.)
