Allison Hunter

Jan­klow & Nes­bit As­so­ciates

Poets and Writers - - Literary Agents -

Who she rep­re­sents: Katie Heaney (Never Have I Ever), Ari­anna Re­bolini (Pub­lic Re­la­tions), Swan Hunt­ley (We Could Be Beau­ti­ful ), Anna Pi­to­niak (The Fu­tures), Anne He­len Petersen (Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud), Christina Kelly (Good Karma), Vic­to­ria James (Drink Pink), Kelsey Miller (Big Girl), Jen Chaney (As If!), Em­i­lie Wap­nick (How to Be Ev­ery­thing), Dvora Mey­ers (The End of the Per­fect 10), Eliot Nel­son (The Belt­way Bi­ble), Me­gan Mulry (A Royal Pain)

What she wants to read: Lit­er­ary and com­mer­cial fic­tion, es­pe­cially up­mar­ket and women’s fic­tion, as well as se­lect mem­oir, nar­ra­tive non­fic­tion, cul­tural stud­ies, and pop cul­ture. I’m es­pe­cially look­ing for funny fe­male writ­ers, great love sto­ries, cam­pus nov­els, beach reads, fam­ily epics, and non­fic­tion pro­jects that speak to the cur­rent cul­tural cli­mate.

When you should con­tact her: Fic­tion writ­ers, please wait un­til you have a com­plete, pol­ished manuscript. Non­fic­tion writ­ers, you should have a fully fleshed out idea and ideally a full book pro­posal.

Where she can be reached: e-mail ahunter@jan­

Why you should want her as your agent: I like to think that I of­fer my au­thors the best of both worlds—the re­sources of a large, world-class agency but with a great deal of per­sonal at­ten­tion. I am a fast and vo­ra­cious reader and feel that it is my duty to read widely in the gen­res I’m rep­re­sent­ing, to fully un­der­stand the mar­ket. I pride my­self on my close working and per­sonal re­la­tion­ships with ed­i­tors at every pub­lish­ing house, as well as my con­nec­tions with the greater lit­er­ary com­mu­nity in New York City.

How she wants to be con­tacted: Please send me a query and ap­prox­i­mately ten to fif­teen pages of your manuscript or pro­posal.
