Ayesha Pande Literary describes itself as “a New York based boutique literary agency with a small and eclectic roster of clients” and prides itself as “especially passionate about discovering and nurturing talented new voices”

Anjali Singh is the newest member of the team, and like all new agents, she needs authors. Anjali was previously editorial director at Other Press, and an editor at Simon & Schuster, Houghton Mifflin and Vintage. She has always been drawn to the thrill of discovering new writers.

Anjali is seeking character-driven fiction or nonfiction that reflect an engagement with the world around us. She wants literary thrillers, memoirs, YA literartue and graphic novels.

Query Anjali through the agency’s on-line form here.

The agency also has two other agents, both looking for clients:

Ayesha Pande is the agency’s founder and lead agent. She has worked in the publishing industry for over 20 years. Before becoming an agent, Ayesha was a senior editor at Farra Straus & Giroux. She has also held editorial positions at HarperCollins and Crown Publishers.

She is seeking both literary and popular fiction, particularly, young adult, women’s African-American and international fiction, and graphic novels. She is also seeking authors of nonfiction, including biography, history, economics, popular culture, cultural commentary, and memoir.

Query Ayesha through the agency’s on-line form here.

Sergei Tsimberov has an MFA in Creative Writing from the Univeristy of Iowa Writers’ Workshop and a J.D. from the Cardozo School of Law. He has been a literary agent since 2013 and joined Ayesha Pande Literary in 2014.

Sergie represents both literary fiction and non-fiction and is looking for imaginative and polished voice-driven writing. He is particularly interested in narratives with historical, political, and international themes.
