My Manuscript Wish List® Items

Laura Mazer specializes in adult nonfiction with a focus on culture and lifestyle, intelligent pop culture, health and wellness, counterintuitive advice, packaged gift or “concept” books, and books that take us on geeky deep dives into fascinating facets of everyday life. She also adores history, biography, and celebrations of literary legacies, especially when they offer fresh stories about women. She also represents select commercial upmarket fiction.

A longtime advocate for underrepresented voices, Laura sits on the board of The OpEd Project and teaches publishing seminars at Left Margin Lit, a writing center in Berkeley. Before becoming an agent, Laura was managing editor of the global news agency representing some of the most influential writers of the day, including Hillary Clinton and Arianna Huffington.
