My Manuscript Wish List®

Keely Boeving is an agent with WordServe Literary, based in Denver, CO.

She represents a wide range of projects in both the general and Christian markets. For adults, she is particularly interested in the areas of Christian living, spiritual transformation, the intersection of faith and culture, physical and mental health, embodiment, social justice, business and entrepreneurship, and motherhood, parenting, and family life. She is always seeking projects from diverse and under-represented voices.

Keely also represents picture books, middle grade, and young adult fiction. In children’s literature, she is drawn to contemporary stories that take on perennial questions in a new way, excite the imagination, and allow children to see themselves in the book’s pages, perhaps for the first time. She loves picture books with strong imagery, a sense of play, and a message that’s imparted with nuance and subtlety.  In general, she is not looking for science fiction, fantasy, romance, or horror.
