Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Chasya Milgrom of Dystel & Goderich) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
Ms. Chasya Milgrom was recently promoted from assistant to full-fledged agent over at Dystel and Goderich.
Fiction areas of interest: literary fiction, and fiction with a splash of irony and humor.
Nonfiction areas of interest: psychology, narrative nonfiction, politics, history and pop culture.
How to contact: email@example.com. Enclose a cover letter, outline or brief synopsis of the work (with word count if possible), a sample chapter, and a stamped, self-addressed envelope for our response. E-mail queries are fine, but keep them brief and make sure your cover letter is in the body of the e-mail. Please be sure to query only one agent at this agency. Responds to most query letters within a six to eight week period. If you don't hear from her within that time frame, chances she did not receive yours. Feel free to resend it.
