The Prospect Agency has six agents, all taking on new clients. The agency specializes in   romance, women's fiction, literary fiction, urban fantasy and sci-fi, mysteries and thrillers, young adult and children's literature, and picture book writers and illustrators. 

Prospect is also open to strong memoirs, narrative nonfiction and selective works of nonfiction from authors with strong established areas of expertise.

Linda Camacho joined Prospect Agency in 2015 after nearly a decade in publishing. After graduating from Cornell University, Linda interned at Simon & Schuster and Writers House literary agency, and worked at Penguin before happily settling into children's marketing at Random House. She has an MFA in creative writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Unofficially, Linda loves chocolate, travel, and far too much TV. In terms of submissions, she's pretty omnivorous. She enjoys a variety of categories and genres, ranging from picture book to adult, from clean and lighthearted contemporary to edgy and dark fantasy.
Follow Linda on Twitter: @LindaRandom. See Linda’s favourite books here.

Linda is currently seeking: Adult, middle grade, and young adult fiction across all genres (romance, horror, fantasy, realistic, light sci-fi, and graphic novels). Select literary fiction (preferably with commercial bent) and picture books (both writers and illustrators welcome). Select narrative nonfiction and memoir. Diversity of all types (ethnicity, disability, sexuality, etc.). Linda is not seeking: Early readers/chapter books, screenplays, poetry, and short stories.

Query Linda through Prospect’s submission page here.
Include three chapters and a brief synopsis. Do not query by email or letter mail. Don not submit unsolicited manuscripts or inquire about the status of submissions via email. See Prospect’s submissions page here.
