Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Amanda Luedeke of MacGregor Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Amanda: Amanda is a 2006 graduate of Taylor University’s Professional Writing program. Since her college graduation, Amanda has made her living as a full-time writer, freelancing for newspapers and marketing agencies as well as operating her own writing business. Amanda came on board with us a year ago as Chip’s assistant and is now a full agent.
She is seeking: childrens, YA, speculative, and post-college-aged fiction and nonfiction. Amanda will also be helping with foreign deals.
