Agent Looking for Clients

Amaryah Orenstein has always loved to read and provide (oftentimes unsolicited) editorial advice and, as a literary agent, she is thrilled to help writers bring their ideas to life. Aiming to give voice to a broad range of perspectives, she represents a wide array of literary and commercial fiction, narrative nonfiction and YA, and is always looking for works that wed beautiful writing with a strong narrative and tackle big issues in engaging, accessible, and even surprising ways. She is also interested in narrative non-fiction and memoir but enjoys any book that connects the reader to its characters and evokes thought and feeling.

Amaryah began her career at the Laura Gross Literary Agency in 2009 and, prior to that, she worked as an Editorial Assistant at various academic research foundations, including the Tauber Institute, where she edited books for Brandeis University Press/University Press of New England. Originally from Montreal, Canada, Amaryah earned a BA at McGill University before coming to the United States to pursue graduate studies in American History. She completed an MA at Ohio University’s Contemporary History Institute and a PhD at Brandeis University, and currently serves as Co-President of the Boston chapter of the Women’s National Book Association.

GO Literary aims to give voice to a broad range of perspectives and welcomes electronic submissions from both established and first-time writers.

Please send your queries to submissions@go-lit.com

Emails should include a description of your work and a brief biographical sketch. Please do not send your manuscript, whole or partial, unless it has been specifically requested.

GO Literary does not charge reading fees and makes every effort to respond to all submissions within 4-6 weeks of receipt. If you have not received a reply within that time, please feel free to resubmit your query – it’s possible it got lost in cyberspace or was accidentally overlooked.

Please note: GO Literary does not accept submissions via snail mail or social media.

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy
