What I'm looking for...

Kate is looking for fresh non-fiction that says something about the way we live…

Beautiful narrative non-fiction with a strong voice, inspiring new approaches to relationships, business, or everyday life, writing that makes social, political, and economic issues accessible and engaging, or intriguing cultural & scientific commentary.

Fiction that does the same and/ or writing that makes her want to read and re-read individual sentences are equally welcome.

Kate also commissions commercial fiction at Agora Books. For more on the submissions process, go to agorabooks.co
