Regal Hoffman & Associates has five literary agents, all accepting new authors. Their primary areas of interest include literary fiction, thrillers, narrative nonfiction (history, biography, science, etc.), memoir, and some category nonfiction. They strongly encourage submissions from writers of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Their children's book agents look after all categories, with an emphasis on young adult and middle-grade fiction. They don’t represent romance, poetry, or screenplays.

The newest member of the team is Grace Ross, who recently joined as a junior agent. Like all new agents, she needs authors.  Grace started her career at Oxford University Press in editorial before transitioning to agenting, first at Lowenstein Associates and then at Denise Shannon Literary Agency.

Grace is interested in literary fiction that experiments with form and speaks to the current cultural climate; historical fiction; international narratives; and dynamic plots that bridge genres.

In nonfiction, she is looking for socially and politically conscious narratives, especially those that engage with cultural conversations about gender, race, and class in an accessible way; but she's also drawn to popular science, biography, cultural theory, and memoir. Grace was born in Washington, DC and holds a B.A. in English/American Studies from Wesleyan University.

For fiction, you may include the first ten pages of a novel or one story from a collection. Full submissions details and information on what all the agents at Regal Hoffman are seeking here.
