Looking for a Literary Agent? Find Out About Alloy Entertainment’s Initiative The Collaborative

    Alloy-Entertainment-Literary-Agent-The-Collaboartive

    What It Is: If you have a completed manuscript and are in search of a literary agent, this is for you! The Collaborative is an initiative for Alloy Entertainment’s Book Division (the same one that brought you Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries, and more!) Traditionally, AE has developed its intellectual property internally, originating concepts in-house and then closely guiding the development process with writers. The Collaborative applies a similar model to existing manuscripts. Our team will lend creative expertise, marketing capabilities and the AE brand to authors with solid concepts and strong voices. Acquired projects will be shaped by The Collaborative and the author together, before determining the next steps for publication.

    Alloy Entertainment, acquired by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. in 2012, now has the support of a major studio behind all of its projects, including those in The Collaborative. As part of Warner Bros., AE retains the rights to produce each property in film, television, and new media. Authors will share in profits, across all platforms.

    What We’ve Done: AE is excited to have two fantastic books leading the way in our Collaborative acquisitions! How to Love by Katie Cotugno, a voice-driven romance told in alternating Before and After chapters, will be published October 2013 on Balzer & Bray’s list, an imprint of HarperCollins. The Art of Disappearing by Elena Perez, a heartbreaking and mysterious novel about a popular girl who starts to lose it all when she learns she may be psychic, launched as an e-book original title in Summer 2012.

    What We’re Looking For: The Collaborative looks to acquire up to twelve partial or complete manuscripts per year with emphasis on women’s fiction, young adult, middle grade, and chapter books. We’re excited about fresh, new voices, and strong, unique concepts.

    Submission Guidelines: We are evaluating full or partial fiction manuscripts only—please, no scripts. If you don’t have an agent, please send us a query email that contains a brief overview of the premise of your book and a short description of your writing background. In addition, please include the first five pages of your manuscript. And agents, feel free to get in touch for your clients! We cannot accept submissions from legal minors. Please also note that we are only interested in manuscripts which have not previously been submitted to publishing houses.

    Please submit by e-mail only to thecollaborative@alloyentertainment.com. We will make our best efforts to get back to you within four weeks.

      To Whom It May Concern:

      I am currently a college student and was encouraged by a professor to reach out to see if there will be any upcoming PA work for the television shows? It would be an honor if I could send over a resume.

      Best,

      Natalie Rodriguez

I have worked on shows for such networks as Nickelodeon, E!, Travel channel, BBC America, The Discovery Channel, and Oxygen as well as handful of Independent feature films and web series.
