Two New Agents Added to the Conference Lineup!
Due to an agent cancellation and the increased demand for agent consultations we have added not one, but two new agents to our conference lineup. Victoria Marini of Gelfman Schneider Literary Agents is actively building her list. She is looking for middle grade and YA fiction (particularly sci-fi fantasy, thriller, horror, paranormal, and edgy contemporary). She is also seeking women’s fiction, urban fantasy, romantic suspense, and pop-culture non-fiction. Susan Shulman established her literary and dramatic agency specializing in contemporary fiction and nonfiction for adult readers and both picture books and general fiction and nonfiction books for children and young adults. In addition, the agency represents film, television, and allied rights.
