Courtney Littler

I’m passionate about writing that is intelligent, engaging, and unique. I’m looking primarily for nonfiction, particularly memoirs with a distinctive narrative voice and a strong sense of place. Topics related to the arts, human sexuality and relationships, and travel appeal to me as well.

For fiction acquisitions, I'm especially interested in books that experiment with narrative design elements to express an idea or tell an original story. I'm constantly looking for writers who merge traditional storytelling with unique structures. Epistolary novels are among my favorite to read.

Regardless of genre, a few things automatically interest me. As a major supporter of gender equality, I'm drawn to stories about women’s rights and experiences, both fiction and nonfiction. A female protagonist—strong but flawed—is always interesting to me. I'm from Arizona and I've lived in London, so I’m always interested in books set in the Southwest or England. I have a master's degree in Victorian Gothic literature and am a sucker for a good ghost story. I’m also a foodie and have experience editing cookbooks, and I appreciate a good thrifty or timesaving angle.

Have something you're proud of? Send it to me along with the best pun you know.
