Frances Goldin Literary Agency

My Manuscript Wish List

Jade joined Frances Goldin in 2021. She previously worked for three years at Massie & McQuilkin Literary Agents as a junior agent and foreign rights associate. A graduate of Vassar College, Jade got her start in publishing at Writers House, W. W. Norton, and Folio Literary Management. She’s looking for adult literary/upmarket fiction and narrative nonfiction, with an emphasis on narratives by and about people of color, as well as the perspectives of marginalized identities.

Her wishlist includes (but is not limited to!):

  • Asian-American writers, particularly SE Asian-American writers
  • Literary magical realism (think THE POWER or STATION ELEVEN; no high fantasy, please)
  • Books about cooking, restaurants, or anything related to food
  • Nonfiction writing on contemporary social issues (think EVICTED or HEARTLAND)
  • Family stories, especially those about non-nuclear families and extended family relationships
  • Narratives that explore hidden histories or subcultures
