New Literary Agent Alert: Mary Krienke of Sterling Lord Literistic

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Fiction Agents, Literary Agent, Literary Fiction Agents, New Agency Alerts, Nonfiction Agents, What's New, Young Adult Literary Agents.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Mary Krienke of Sterling Lord Literistic) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.




About Mary: Mary Krienke joined Sterling Lord Literistic in 2006 after receiving her MFA in Fiction from Columbia University. Born and raised in Nebraska, Mary received her BA in Psychology and English from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. She now lives in Brooklyn. Find her on Twitter: @MaryKrienke.

She is seeking: Mary represents literary fiction, creative nonfiction, and realistic YA that pays close attention to craft and voice. She is especially drawn to new and emerging writers who seek to push boundaries of form and content, and she responds most strongly to writing that reaches great emotional and psychological depths. She is equally interested in work that illuminates through humor or by playing with genre. Her other interests include psychology, art, and design.

How to submit: Mary is happy to receive submissions via email. If submitting fiction, please send a synopsis and the first three chapters or a 50 page sample. If submitting non-fiction, send a detailed proposal.  The queries should be sent to info [at] sll.com with “Attn: Mary Krienke” in the email subject line. Cover letters should be in the body of the email but send the actual submission as a Word document attachment.
