Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Steven Hutson of WordWise Media) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Steven: Steven Hutson is a native of Los Angeles, a child of the sixties, and a storyteller almost from birth. (He’s convinced that the Wimpy Kid books are based on his childhood, but he can’t prove it.) After several years freelance editing and directing a writers’ conference, he established WordWise Media Services in early 2011. Several agency clients have won prestigious awards for their works. He speaks frequently at writers’ events, writes an eclectic blog, and serves on the Board of Trustees for his local public library.
He is seeking: Steve wants to be surprised with fresh ideas, particularly from young people. He represents a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books for adults and children. Spiritual themes are a favorite.
Please no erotica, poetry, chainsaw murders, picture books, or screenplays.
Submission instructions: "Download the query form on the agency website, and follow the instructions carefully. If you don’t hear back within 30 days, feel free to send a reminder." Seeking writers from the US and Canada only.
