Poets and Writers - - Literary Agents -

Who he rep­re­sents: Lawrence Os­borne (Hunters in the Dark), Jen­nine Capó Crucet (Make Your Home Among Strangers), Ron Rash (The Risen), Lisa Ser­von (The Un­bank­ing of Amer­ica: How the Mid­dle Class Sur­vives), David Treuer (Pru­dence), Devin Leonard (Nei­ther Snow nor Rain: A His­tory of the United States Postal Ser­vice), Leah Vin­cent (Cut Me Loose: Sin and Sal­va­tion Af­ter My Ul­tra-Or­tho­dox Girl­hood), Dik­sha Basu (The Wind­fall)

What he wants to read: De­but lit­er­ary and up­mar­ket fic­tion; nar­ra­tive non­fic­tion and mem­oir; jour­nal­ists and aca­demics writ­ing new takes on cul­ture, politics, and cur­rent events. Re­gard­less of genre, I’m al­ways in­ter­ested in di­verse voices and un­der­rep­re­sented per­spec­tives, and as a na­tive North Carolinian I am par­tial to great fic­tion set in the South.

When you should con­tact him: For fic­tion, it’s usu­ally best to be in touch when you have a fin­ished manuscript to share. For non­fic­tion, a draft of a pro­posal.

Where he can be reached: e-mail adam@ch­eneylit­er­ary.com

Why you should want him as your agent: I try to keep a small, se­lec­tive list and only take on pro­jects I re­ally be­lieve in, which en­ables me to be a hands-on and pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cate for each of my writ­ers. This in­cludes in­depth ed­i­to­rial work, working strate­gi­cally to find the best pub­lish­ing deals, and shep­herd­ing an au­thor through all as­pects of the pub­li­ca­tion process, in­clud­ing pub­lic­ity and mar­ket­ing. My goal is al­ways to help each of my au­thor’s books make as big an im­pact as pos­si­ble and to build ca­reers over time. How he wants to be con­tacted: A query by e-mail with a full manuscript (for fic­tion) or a pro­posal (non­fic­tion).
