Wendi Lulu Gu
My Manuscript Wish List
Wendi Gu is an agent at Greenburger Associates. She was raised by hardworking immigrant parents in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Shortly after graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in Creative Writing and Anthropology, she started working at Greenburger under the mentorship of Brenda Bowen.
Wendi likes puns, quirky humor, girl power, and cute animals in picture books, middle grade, and young adult fiction. She’s also looking for literary middle grade, young adult, or adult fiction on the first-generation American experience. Wendi loves a middle grade with that classic vibe and any book that makes you want to hug someone.
Although she leans towards contemporary fiction, Wendi first and foremost appreciates anything character-driven with a strong voice.
Fun facts about me:
-Beagles are my favorite, but all dogs have good souls.
-On the weekends, I work at Dou Yoga in Brooklyn. I am THIS close to perfecting my crow pose.
-In China, the most polite way to greet someone is not "hello" or "how are you?" but "have you eaten yet?" I will always ask if you've eaten. (Or if you need a drink.)
Submissions should be emailed to email@example.com
