Agents and editors’ desired genres:
These grids show which genres the agents and editors have indicated they’re interested in — or in some cases, not interested in. Use them as a guide in choosing which agents and editors to approach, but still do your research, because sometimes there are nuances that a chart like this can’t capture — for example, an agent who likes Young Adult might like YA romance and YA sci-fi, but not YA fantasy.
Please note that editor Annie Nybo will be happy to provide a consultation, but will not be taking pitches. Agents Katie Shea Boutillier and Sarah LaPolla require the author be pitching a completed manuscript in order to meet with them.
