Farley Chase recently founded Chase Literary Agency after nearly eight years with the Waxman Literary Agency. Before becoming an agent he worked in magazines; at both The New Yorker and Talk magazine, and at publishing companies; both The New Press and Miramax Books.

Interests: "I'm excited to hear about new ideas in memoir, journalism, science, natural history, military history, food, sports, international affairs, current events, business or biography. I’m drawn to voice-driven and original content written by authors distinguished by an expertise and passion for conveying what is new, interesting and/or entertaining about their subject matter.

"I'm interested in humor books and pop culture projects.

"I’m interested in photo, graphic, and otherwise illustrated books.

"I'm interested in books that can be adapted out of blogs or websites.

"My fiction list is selective and I concentrate on plot driven novels with a strong sense of voice, place and character. I do not represent young adult, romance, or science fiction.

"I'm actively looking for new clients."

Query Farley Chase at:
"I prefer straightforward query letters that get right to the point about what the project is and which show the author to be familiar with the marketplace. If you're submitting fiction please include the first few pages of the manuscript with the query. I do not represent young adult, romance, or science fiction."

Farley Chase's website isn't up and running yet. (His agency is that new.) But his page at Publisher's Marketplace includes a list of books he's represented in various genres. See here.

Brian Henry will lead a "How to Get Published" workshop on Saturday, June 9, in Brampton with guest Monica Pacheco of The Anne McDermid literary agency (see here).

See Brian's full schedule here, including writing workshops and creative writing courses in Kingston, Peterborough, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Georgetown, Oakville, Burlington, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Dundas, Kitchener, Guelph, London, Woodstock, Orangeville, Newmarket, Barrie, Gravenhurst, Sudbury, Muskoka, Peel, Halton, the GTA, Ontario and beyond.
