1. Amanda Panitch of Lippincott Massie McQuilkin
She is seeking: Young adult and middle grade only. In particular, she'd love to find a high fantasy set in a non-Western inspired setting. Other concepts she'd love to see in her inbox include a dark psychological thriller, a quirky mystery, a gorgeous literary contemporary, historical fiction set in a place or time not often explored in fiction, or anything featuring food as a main element. She is also drawn to generational spaceships, unreliable narrators, magical realism, the pre-Columbian Americas, the Amazon, close sibling relationships, and slow-burning romances.
2. Kirsten Carleton of Waxman Leavell Literary Agency
Kirsten is seeking: Upmarket young adult, speculative, and literary fiction with strong characters and storytelling. She's particularly interested in novels that bend and blur genres; literary takes on high concept worldbuilding; diverse characters in stories that are not just about diversity; antiheroes she find herself rooting for; characters with drive and passion; girls and women in STEM fields; settings outside the US/Europe; well-researched historical settings; YA noir/thriller/mystery; stories that introduces her to a new subculture and makes her feel like a native. She is not interested in horror, romance, erotica, poetry, or picture books.
