Use these genre charts to help you choose an agent or editor for your pitch

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.  These charts are just meant to be a starting point in making your decision on who to meet with.

Fiction genres

Nonfiction genres

Agents and editors’ priorities do change on occasion, which means these charts are also subject to change.  If we end up doing that we’ll announce it in this blog.

Once you’ve made your choice you can register and sign up for your pitch session!  If you already registered and need to go back into your registration to make or change your selection, here are instructions on how to do that. You can change a previous selection up until April 10.

Good luck with your pitch session!
