Meet the Faculty: Amy Boggs
In football terms, they’re called “two-a-days.” During training camp, in the heat of August, instead of one practice on the field, there were two. We’re running two-a-days this August to give you a chance to find out more about the faculty at this year’s conference. Each evening, we’ll post information about a faculty member. Enjoy!
Amy Boggs, Agent at Donald Maass Literary
Amy Boggs joined the Donald Maass Literary agency in 2009. She is looking for fantasy and science fiction, especially urban fantasy, paranormal romance, steampunk, YA/children’s, and alternate history. Historical fiction, Westerns, and works that challenge their genre are also welcome. She is seeking projects with characters who are diverse in any and all respects, such as (but not limited to) gender, race, ethnicity, disability, and sexuality. She is not looking for thrillers, women’s fiction, or picture books. She interned previously for the Beth Vesel Literary Agency and is a graduate of Vassar College.
