Care To Know What New York Editors Are Looking For? Do THIS.

Amazing agent Kristin Nelson (of Nelson Literary Agency, based in Denver) recently spent six weeks in New York, meeting with editors to find out what they’re drooling for these days. Care to know more?

You need to follow NLA’s monthly newsletter to find out. In this month’s issue, Kristin gives a breakdown of what editors are thinking about in terms of submissions.

There are some juicy tidbits involving Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult manuscripts.

Thrillers, steampunk, action-adventure, family dramas, epic fantasy, romance, literary voices, emotional depth—they're all mentioned, but you'll have to read the newsletter to find out the context.
