Pretty cool, Kalisha!

Congratulations to Jonathan and to Pamela Malpas.

Poet and former Aspenite Jonathan Wells this week published “The Skinny,” a powerful memoir about his underweight teen years and the abuse his skinniness inspired.

I sent a Query letter by snail mail as was requested but it was returned to me as undeliverable? Is this agency still in business and if so what is the correct mailing address? I have a creative non-fiction I wish to submit. [email protected]

“I’m interested in unique, idiosyncratic voices and in discovering great prose and then figuring out how I can finesse a place for it in the market. I put my faith in passionate writers and their ideas. Writers should write what they care deeply about, and hopefully that will transcend a trend or set one." - Jennifer Lyons in a fabulous interview with Kirkus Reviews! So proud of Jennifer, who I'm proud to call my agent, for her tireless commitment to literature and her indomitable spirit! Do read this interview!
