New Agent Alert: Kathleen Rushall of Waterside Productions

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, New Agency Alerts.
Editor’s note: In June 2011, Kathleen moved
to the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. Updated
submission guidelines are below.——————


Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Kathleen Rushall of Waterside Productions) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.



About Kathleen
: She is a new literary agent building her client list at Waterside Productions (and now Marsal Lyon Literary). Kathleen entered the publishing world with an internship at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, and from there she started at Waterside Productions in 2009 as a literary assistant. She has her MA in English with a specialization in children’s literature. To learn more about what she’s looking for, check out her interview on the young adult lit blog, Love YA.

She is seeking
: YA and MG fiction across the board (historical fiction, science fiction, mystery, humor, fantasy, romance, thriller, and horror), picture books, and adult nonfiction (business, parenting, how-to, women’s interest, humor, health, crafts).

How to submit: You can send your electronic submissions to her at kathleen@marsallyonliteraryagency.com. For fiction submissions, please write “QUERY” in the subject line of the e-mail and include your query letter with the first 10 pages of your work in the body of your e-mail.

    She’s moved to the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency! Announced June 2 on her twitter.

  2. Melissa Hed says:

    She wants the 50 pages as Word or PDF attachment. See Question 6 answer of her interview at http://monibw.blogspot.com/2011/03/interview-with-agent-kathleen-rushall.html

  3. Becca,

    I posted mine within the body of the e-mail and she read the whole thing and requested the full. I ended up signing with her. She is just as fabulous as she sounds!

    :) Good luck!

  4. Becca C. says:

    She sounds great! One question I can’t seem to find answered anywhere is whether she wants the 50 pages attached as a Word document or pasted in the email. Most agents don’t want unsolicited attachments, but it would be hard to read 50 pages if it’s pasted in the email. Does anyone know?

  5. Natalie Aguirre says:

    Thanks for the alert. I’m excited because Kathleen likes fantasy like I write. Now if I can finish my revisions.
