New Literary Agent: Emily Gref of Lowenstein Associates - Writer's Digest

New Literary Agent Alert: Emily Gref of Lowenstein Associates

Reminder: Newer agents are golden opportunities for new writers because they're likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you're just wasting time and postage. She is seeking: Her interests are wide and varied. In young adult and middle grade she is looking for all genres, but has a weak spot for fairy tale, folklore, and mythology retellings. Emily is also interested in fantasy and science fiction, as well as literary and commercial women’s fiction. In nonfiction, she is looking for strong narratives and books by recognized experts with a wide-reaching platform. Books that lend themselves well to digital platforms are especially of interest. Nonfiction projects she’d like to take on include narratives about linguistics, anthropology and history. She is also open to biographies and memoirs with a strong voice and unique hook.
