Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Leila Campoli of Stonesong Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Leila: Before joining Stonesong, she was most recently an editor at Palgrave Macmillan. Some of her previous titles include: Mark D. White’s The Illusion of Wellbeing, Gudrun Johnsen’s Bringing Down the Banking Industry, Deborah Gregory’s Unmasking Financial Psychopaths, and Matt Ragas and Ron Culp’s Business Essentials for Strategic Communicators.
The biggest literary agent database anywhere
is the Guide to Literary Agents. Pick up the
most recent updated edition online at a discount.
She is seeking: prescriptive and narrative nonfiction projects in business, finance, investing, science, pop culture, and current events. Her ideal author has a strong platform, groundbreaking ideas, and unique style. She’s particularly interested in books that offer a window into remarkable lives and little known operations. Please no fiction, poetry, or screenplays.
How to submit: E-query submissions [at] stonesong.com. Put "Query for Leila: [Title]" in the subject line of your email. No attachments. "If you have not received a request from us within 12 weeks, consider that we have passed."
