Representing Adult Authors

Submissions

Evan is currently open to submissions by referral only. His list is focused on the following genres:

Literary fiction, featuring unique voices, intriguing characters, writing ranging from real to the surreal, and stories that ponder big questions – even when narrow in scope.

Historical fiction, literary rather than genre, preferably pre-20th century, featuring epic settings, great storytelling woven through real history, multi-generational legacies, and compelling character drama.

Fantasy fiction, written for adult readers rather than YA or crossover, meaning mature themes, laced with intricate lore, tangled multi-faction politics, and relatable character motivations.

Science fiction, grounded in believable worlds near to our own, set in unique and evocative locations, challenging elements of contemporary society through a futuristic lens or alternative reality.

Sports history, memoir, and nonfiction, ideally narrative-driven stories, reflecting to some extent on bigger social issues or the wider world beyond sports.

Submissions by email only, please, including a short biography, synopsis, and 20-page sample in Word or PDF. With regret, replies will be sent only for submissions being actively considered.
