Agent Additions and Cancellations to WDC16 in New York

If you are reading this, you are likely an attendee at the 2016 Writer’s Digest Conference in New York, which is happening this weekend August 12-14. We have about 60-65 literary agents attending our Saturday Pitch Slam event, and there have been many additions as well as some cancellations since the print programs were created. The info below is here to help you understand which agents have been added (and subtracted) and what genres & categories they represent. Good luck pitching. If there are any questions, find me at the conference and ask me, or email me at chuck.sambuchino [at]

Kathryn Green Literary Agency
Kathy is currently seeking cozy mysteries with fresh angles and interesting locales, upmarket women’s fiction (think the next Liane Moriarity), and police procedurals with female protagonists. For nonfiction she likes quirky projects and narrative nonfiction with a laser focus on one subject. Also seeks contemporary realistic YA fiction and middle grade with heart.

Ed is seeking narrative nonfiction authors, graphic novelists, as well as children’s book authors who also illustrate. He is especially interested in working with authors who may publish across different genres and formats—scholarly and trade—over the course of their careers. Ed hopes to connect with authors of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and voices. He represents some fiction — idea-driven literary fiction and upmarket sci-fi. He likes working with diverse writers. He is expressly interested in fiction and fiction writers who are reflecting on social justice, cultural justice, civil discourse, and synthesis.

    Great, thank you for the update.

    How will these additions be placed on the Pitch Slam Floor?

    Since agents are placed at numbered tables in alphabetical order, will the new additions be fit in alphabetically (moving everyone’s table number), placed at new table numbers at the end, or something else?

    Given the limited window during our Pitch Slam time slots, understanding an updated floor plan would be great.
