Agent Looking to Build List

DongWon Song

DongWon Song – Agent at Howard Morhaim Literary

DongWon Song is a literary Agent at the Howard Morhaim Literary Agency. He was formerly an editor at Orbit, an imprint of Hachette Book Group. There, he launched multiple New York Times bestselling series, including FEED by Mira Grant and LEVIATHAN WAKES by James S.A. Corey. He was the first hire at a publishing startup, Zola Books, and while there oversaw content and eventually became the head of product for the ecommerce and ebook apps.

He is a graduate of Duke University with a BA in English and Economics.

He is looking for science fiction and fantasy – especially epic fantasy or high fantasy for both adults and teens. He is also interested in non-fiction especially food writing, science, and pop-culture.

What should I include with my submission?

For fiction, we like to see a concise cover letter and three sample chapters – the first three. For non-fiction, please send a full proposal. Attachments are fine.

I haven’t heard from you in a while, what should I do?

Be patient. We do try to respond to everyone, but sometimes it can take a little while. We aim to respond to queries in 6 to 8 weeks. Please don’t call to ask.

Talk tomorrow,
