In this week’s installment of mediabistro.com’s “Pitching an Agent” series, M. David Hornbuckle takes a look at Scribe Agency, founded two years ago by Kristopher O’Higgins and Jesse Vogel, who met in the office of former literary agent (now an editor) James Frenkel. Their client list “skews toward science fiction and fantasy,” Hornbuckle reports, “but they are looking for works that are well-written and truly have something to say—while being entertaining and engaging.” You know, the usual. Oh, and make sure your query letter “sings… Write it with the same passion you used to write your novel. Let some personality in. Monotonous letters bore them.”
