Willy Blackmore, a former editor and co-founder of Impetus Press, has joined BLISS Literary agency as an Associate Agent and is looking for authors.
Fiction areas of interests: writing with a pop or urban edge that falls between commercial and experimental, and traditional literary fiction. He prefers narrative-driven novels that construct and develop a real and engaging world. He does not represent straight genre fiction (e.g. fantasy, romance, crime, horror, etc.), but will consider manuscripts that take a new slant on the traditions and tropes of a genre.
Nonfiction areas of interest: pop culture, food/travel writing, contemporary art and culture, memoirs that showcase an intense sense of immediacy and confront difficult realities, and histories and biographies that relate to literature and art.
