Literary agent at @ktliterary (closed to queries). I tweet about books and desserts in equal measure. My dog is the best office assistant ever. She/her
Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymondsHello querying authors!📣I’m reopening to queries today at kt literary!📣 I will be exclusively using Query Manager now: QueryManager.com/laurelsymonds. (1/7)
My general #MSWL remains the same and you can find that (and kt literary’s querying guidelines) here: ktliterary.com/submissions And with more detail here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…. (2/7)
Literary MG, whether that's contemporary (a la Corey Ann Haydu) or an animal POV (PAX), I want the books that are going to pull at my heartstrings but leave me uplifted. I'd also love to see something girly (UNICORN QUEST) or with complex puzzles (BENEDICT SOCIETY). #MSWL
Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds@ct_calella @angelaahnbooks @shellyvjames @FTBradleyAuthor @KeeganMBrown @dougcenko @sarahkcwrites @zoeselina @JameyanneFuller @ShayESTaylor @CarolynLe12 @MicBabay I’ve met—or nearly met—all of my first year goals. And I have BIG plans for next year: signing more clients, selling big books, diving deeper into foreign/film/audio, attending more conferences, and finding a way to mentor or offer a paid internship.
Speaking of new clients, my #MSWL has been updated! Yes, I’m looking for graphic novels now! Plus, a continued call for commercial YA, literary MG, and PB author-illustrators. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…
I had such an amazing time at #alaac19 and in New York! After wonderful conversations with my TBA colleagues and many editors, a few updates to my #MSWL: coming of age literary MG, young illustrated MG, and (still!) contemporary YA, especially diverse voices and/or a rom com.
