He is seeking: Ed is seeking expert and narrative nonfiction authors, novelists and graphic novelists, and children’s book authors and illustrators. His aim as a literary agent is to help authors grow their intellectual properties into compelling books. 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 believes in popular media as a living cultural record and hopes to connect with authors of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and voices.

(If an agent rejects you, are they open to reviewing your revised submission?)

How to submit: Please email emaxwell [@] sjga.com with your submission under the subject line “QUERY: [Project Title].” Include a query letter in the body of the email and attach a proposal or a sample from your project (40 pages maximum).
