Rita Rosenkranz literary agent actively looking for writers to represent

Rita Rosenkranz is a literary agent actively looking for writers to represent and is judging our Writing Award 2021 with the aim of finding a writer she can represent and help to get published.

A well-established agent, who began her career as an editor at major publishing houses, Rita represents almost exclusively adult non-fiction titles. Her wide-ranging list includes health, history, parenting, music, how-to, popular science, business, biography, sports, popular reference, cooking, writing, humour, spirituality, illustrated books, and general interest titles.

Rita represents first-time as well as seasoned authors and looks for projects that present familiar subjects freshly or lesser-known subjects presented commercially. Rita works with major publishing houses, as well as regional publishers that handle niche markets.

Representative titles include:

  • Forbidden Fruit: Love Stories from the Underground Railroad by Betty DeRamus (Atria Books essence.com best-seller, optioned by NBC for an 8-part series)
  • Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World (Wiley; James Beard Award winner) by Gil Marks
  • 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life by Cami Walker (Da Capo Press; New York Times bestseller, MS Awareness Award Winner, Books for a Better Life)
  • A Mind for Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even if You Flunked Algebra) by Barbara Oakley, Ph.D. (Tarcher).

Rita is a member of the Association of Authors' Representatives (AAR), The Authors Guild, and Women's Media Group.

I'm looking forward to finding adult non-fiction submissions.
