Reminder: New literary agents are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list. This installment is for agent Brittany Howard of Corvisiero Literary.
About Brittany: Brittany Howard of Corvisiero Literary is all about experiences. She’s lived in small towns, big cities, and traveled the world. She has a degree in theatre and is currently pursuing a MFA in Creative Writing. When reading, she loves to be introduced to new and interesting people and places. She looks for strong voice, good storytelling, and fascinating relationships between characters—romantic or otherwise. More than anything, she loves when a book surprises her. Find her on Twitter. Also find her online at the YA Sisterhood Blog.
She is seeking: Her first love is YA-- from High Fantasy to Paranormal to to soft Sci-Fi to Contemporary-- she loves all young adult. She also likes high concept, adventure themed, and funny MG, but a strong voice is MUST for her in MG. She's willing to look at Picture Books, but is very selective.
For adult fiction, she prefers stories that are a romance at heart-- Contemporary, Paranormal, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Historical are all genres she's been known to enjoy. Anything with theatrical or artistic or interesting historical elements will probably catch her eye, too.

She's tends to steer clear of adult epic fantasy, hardcore Sci-fi, YA issue books, chapter books, or books with multiple POV's.
How to submit: Brittany prefers that you paste the 1-2 page synopsis and the first 5 pages directly into the query e-mail. Do not send Brittany attachments. Email your query with pasted material to query [at] corvisieroagency.com with "Query For Brittany" in the subject line.
