New Literary Agent Alert: Sarah Nego of Corvisiero Literary

She is seeking: "I am only accepting middle grade and young adult fiction manuscripts. I'm open to any genre within those age groups, but prefer speculative fiction. Contemporary is not my favorite, but I will look at it. I am not interested in seeing poetry, novels in verse, short stories/novellas or anything focused on saving the environment (I'm all for recycling, but don't want to represent it)."

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Sarah Nego of Corvisiero Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
