Take Scribe Agency to Undiscovered Places

If there’s one thing that Scribe Agency hates, it’s a typical, unoriginal plotline. Specializing in science fiction and fantasy, this agency is looking for unique stories that will take readers to new places, realms or galaxies.

Founder Kristopher O’Higgins insists that his writers go beyond “the same-as-everything-else pabulum that chokes the shelves of your local bookstore.” Only truly original stories will work, not just a different variation of a NYT bestseller.

AvantGuild: Scribe Agency Wants to Hear You Sing

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.”
