My Manuscript Wish List
Andrea Morrison started at Writers House as an intern in 2009. She’s had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of bestselling and award-winning authors and illustrators in genres ranging from picture books to middle grade and YA to adult literary fiction and nonfiction. Having studied Literature/Writing at University of California, San Diego and having earned her MFA in Fiction from Columbia University, Andrea is hands-on editorially. She’s particularly excited about adult fiction that blends gorgeous sentence-level writing with stories featuring younger protagonists. She’s hungry for YA that appeals to all ages and that blends crazy-beautiful language with characters navigating the nutty, magical, and hard parts of being a teen, funny and heartfelt Middle Grade, and unforgettable picture books with vivid artwork. She loves books that defy genre lines and is a total sucker for vivid descriptions of California. Most importantly, she’s looking for characters that need to be heard—for stories that grab your heart and don’t let it go, even after they’re finished.
As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL's sister company, we are now offering e-meeting consultations with a select group of our agents and editors to go over your query letter or first page, get professional feedback, and learn more about the reactions you're getting (or not getting...) from agents. You'll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call--and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our list of participating agents and editors--and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process. You can also learn more via the free MSWL podcast, with agent interviews, tips and tricks for giving your work its best possible chance.
Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you'll see them bolded on the calendar below. Want an email when new meetings go up? Click here.
