A Note from the Editor:
One of the most popular genres on Two Drops of Ink is Memoir. Memoir is a hot genre period. Personally, I think it’s because people are a bit voyeuristic – we love to know the intimate details of people’s lives. We love to hear about their struggles because it helps us with or own. We love their stories of success because it gives us hope. We even love the sad stories, the ones without a happy ending, because we know the author has poured out their heart to us, and we feel like have become a confidant of sorts. We have several posts about the genre of Memoir on the blog, and we have readers and writers in our following that are working on memoirs. This month’s Literary Agent News is about Memoir and agents that are seeking submission from that genre. Good reading.
14 Literary Agents Seeking Memoir NOW
By: Chuck Sambuchino | July 19, 2016
Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint which agents are open to submissions at any given time. So with that in mind, I’m creating some new vertical lists of agents seeking queries right now, as of summer 2016.
This list is for memoir.
All the agents listed below personally confirmed to me as of July 2016 that they are actively seeking memoir (personal life story) submissions NOW. Some gave personal notes about their tastes while some did not. Good luck querying!
