Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Lindsay Mealing of Emerald City Literary

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 4.20.58 PM.pngLindsay Mealing is a literary agent with Emerald City Literary.

Lindsay has been writing stories since she could first hold a pencil. It wasn’t until she sat down to edit a manuscript for the first time she realized her true love was not on the writing side of the publishing industry, but the business side. She began interning for Mandy in early 2015 and quickly realized agenting was what she wanted to do forever more.

Lindsay is a self-proclaimed nerd, loving everything science fiction and fantasy – from epic tomes to gaming. She fell head over heels with the SFF genre when she read KUSHIEL’S DART by Jacqueline Carey (she even has Phedre’s marque tattooed on her back).

You can find Lindsay on Twitter @lindsaymealing.

Lindsay represents: science fiction, fantasy, and young adult.

She does not rep middle grade, nonfiction, short fiction, or adult fiction outside the science fiction and fantasy genres.

Lindsay’s wish list:

  • intrigue, espionage, politics
  • dark fantasy
  • space opera
  • epic sci-fi/fantasy with huge stakes and strong world building
  • morally grey stories and characters
  • gothic horror
  • cyberpunk
  • beautiful literary stories that will make me cry
  • historical fantasy
  • dark, twisty contemporary YA
  • anti-heroes/heroines
  • gaming/geek culture
