Send a Query to Katie Grimm at Don Congdon Associates, Inc.
Thank you for thinking of me.
I represent and am seeking voice-driven literary and upmarket fiction, narrative and creative non-fiction, and literary fiction for young adult and middle grade audiences. Across all genres, I'm looking for books with a heartbeat and sense of purpose. I’ll always be interested in the darker and weirder side of human history, previously under- or misrepresented experiences, and narratives that contribute to a larger cultural conversation.
Please paste your query letter and first chapter into the form below (if you have a prologue, you can include both, for alternating POV, please include a chapter from each, for collections, the first story). I will respond to all queries received.
I prefer QM for submissions, but if you have issues with this form, you can email our general inbox at email@example.com with "Query for Katie Grimm" in the subject line. Thanks again!
