AvantGuild: “An Omnivorous Appetite for Nonfiction”

rita-rosenkranz-headshot.jpgThis week’s installment of mediabistro.com’s “Pitching an Agent” series features a profile of Rita Rosenkranz, who’s been running her own agency based primarily on a nonfiction-writing clientele for 18 years. “Rosenkranz looks for projects that are well-paired to the author for personal or professional reasons,” writes M. David Hornbuckle. “She is attracted to projects that present familiar subjects freshly, as well as those that present lesser-known subjects commercially… Generally, she represents health, history, parenting, how-to, popular science, business, biography, sports, popular reference, cooking, spirituality, theatre, music, film and general interest titles.”
