Screen Shot 2016-10-17 at 1.20.32 PM.png[SOLD OUT OF PITCH APPOINTMENTS]

Vanessa Robins is a jr. literary agent with Corvisiero Literary.

She represents: new adult fiction (especially humorous stories), young adult fiction (loves gritty plots with diverse characters), thrillers, romance with strong female leads, science fiction heavily based in science, and sports-centric plots. For nonfiction, she likes coming-of-age memoirs (cultural/ethnic/sexuality, survivor, and humor-themed; bonus points for medical narratives [characters with medical illnesses and chronic diseases, or MS told through a medical professional’s view point]).

She is not a good fit for middle grade, picture books, or erotica.

Vanessa is a writer, reader, and lover of food. From Lancaster, Pennsylvania—no, she’s not Amish— she graduated from York College of Pennsylvania in May of 2015 with a degree in English literary studies and a minor in professional writing. Vanessa was Managing Editor of her college’s undergraduate literary magazine for two years, where her love of literature thrived, and her passion for the publishing world was created.

When she isn’t reading or working, Vanessa can be found playing rec league softball, experimenting in the kitchen, knitting, or screaming at her favorite sports teams (go Eagles and Phillies!).

  1. I th8ink I will meet with you for a memoir I wrote on Vietnam. It doesn’t fit into any of the categories that are mentioned here, but I was told that you would be a good fit for what I wrote.
