P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiteraryICYMI: @carlywatters was a guest on the ManifestHer podcast where she talked to @kasia_manolas about what she looks for in authors, what stands out in a query letter, the typical day of an agent and so much more!

A reminder that if you have an #askagent question I've probably already answered it over on my IG live Q&As: instagram.com/carlywatters/
Check them out in the highlights! I've been doing them for about 2 years.
A reminder while I’m on maternity leave: if you’re looking for #askagent advice I have hours of Q&A content on my IG highlights.
Here’s a direct link to my latest session from last week: instagram.com/s/aGlnaGxpZ2h0…
Cheryl Pappas @fabulistpappas@carlywatters Thanks so much, Carly. Many of them are already placed in good journals. I am thinking about making three of the stories a novella, but I've heard those do not sell well, either.
Unless you are established already, novellas are also tough.
AmyGaffneyWrites @gaffneyamy@carlywatters On that, is there a middle ground for fiction that’s not overly literary but more than commercial?
category is called "upmarket"
high quality of writing, accessible characters, plotty.
Michael R. Kramer @michaelkramerSB@carlywatters Is there a different length range for YA?
I haven't repped YA in awhile but I think it's still 60-80k. Another agent might chime in here.
