Lily Dolin

United Talent Agency

My Manuscript Wish List

Lily represents clients in both fiction and nonfiction. In fiction, she is drawn to dark and offbeat humor, gripping narratives, strong commercial hooks, family dynamics, and nuanced female perspectives. For nonfiction, she is looking for short story collections and memoirs that are funny, outrageous, shocking, emotional, or all of the above. She also enjoys true crime, pop culture, and narrative history. She is not looking for historical fiction or science/psychology nonfiction at this time.
