Emmanuelle Alspaugh: Guest Agent for Missouri Writer's Guild Conference

The 2008 Missouri Writers Guild Conference starts Friday, so I'm profiling a few of the guests this week. If you're a procratinator and haven't signed up, you might want to email Eva Ridenour at and see if they still have space. One year I signed up at the door.

The cost for the general conference:
Guild Member $155
Chapter member $165
Non-member $179
Student $139 (enrolled in at least on college course for Spring)

Emmanuelle Alspaugh is a literary agent with Wendy Sherman Associates, Inc. She's looking for "literary and commercial fiction, memoir, and nonfiction relevant to contemporary issues." You can see her bio on Wendy Sherman's Website (scroll down a bit to see her entry). She joined the agency a year ago, so she may still be building her client list.

What kind of writing does she like? Check out some of her clients:

Note: She doesn't represent thrillers, horror, cozy mysteries, children's, health/diet/fitness, poetry, or screenplays.

Check out the agency's submission guidelines, so you'll be prepared after you meet her at the conference.
