Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Stephanie Delman of Sanford J. Greenburger Associates ) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Stephanie: After graduating from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Writing Seminars, Stephanie held editorial positions at a health website and a literary journal, and then happily joined Sanford J. Greenburger Associates in 2012. There, she works for the president, collaborates on foreign rights, and is now building her own list. She tweets occasionally at @imaginarysmd.
The biggest literary agent database anywhere
is the Guide to Literary Agents. Pick up the
most recent updated edition online at a discount.
Stephanie is seeking: Literary fiction, historical/book club fiction featuring stories that haven’t been told, upmarket women’s fiction, and smart psychological thrillers/suspense. In nonfiction, Stephanie looks for pop culture, and blog-to-book projects (from writers with established platforms).
Stephanie does NOT represent children’s books, sci-fi, fantasy, romance novels, erotica, or prescriptive nonfiction.
How to submit: Query Stephanie at sdelman [at] sjga.com. Please send a brief letter and the first few chapters of your manuscript in the body of your email, and Stephanie will be in touch if she would like to read more.
