Wolf Literary Services LLC is a full-service literary agency specializing in dynamic, quirky books written for all ages. As an agency, we have a deep respect for the place where “low” art meets high art—we like a good story, regardless of genre.
We’re always looking for new voices to add to our exciting, genre-busting list of authors, which includes debut writers, author/illustrators, television personalities, popular bloggers, and creative professionals who are leaders in their fields.
Rachel Crawford is a literary agent and film rights manager at Wolf Literary.
Hailing from sunny Brisbane, Australia, Rachel moved to New York in 2011. She worked previously at Sterling Lord Literistic and as an associate at Fletcher and Company, and has a background in rights and marketing.
Rachel is looking for literary and commercial fiction and YA. She’s interested in stories that defy genre conventions and play with reader expectations, and particularly enjoys dystopian, eco-fiction, and apocalyptic narratives, as well as anything with a scientist protagonist. She’s also looking for international fiction, political fiction that explores big ideas through compelling narrative, and stories from traditionally underrepresented voices. She loves stories about women by women.
In non-fiction she’s interested in tech, futurism, psychology, and science, and isn’t adverse to prescriptive non-fiction from authors with a strong professional background in their topic of choice.
To submit a project to Rachel, following the instructions below:
Please send a query letter along with a 50-page writing sample (for fiction) or a detailed proposal (for nonfiction) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Samples may be submitted as an attachment or embedded in the body of the email.
We would prefer to receive electronic queries over mailed submissions whenever possible.
Please only query one agent at a time; we happily share interesting submissions within the agency. A rejection from one agent means a rejection from all agents–please do not resubmit unless your project has been substantially revised, or we’ve requested that you do so.
Please be advised that due to the large number of queries we receive, it is not always possible for us to respond to every one; we assure you that we are reading your material and will be in touch if we are interested.
