Wolf Literary Services is a full-service literary agency specializing in dynamic, quirky books written for all ages. As an agency, we have a deep respect for the place where “low” art meets high art—we like a good story, regardless of genre.

We specialize in the kinds of books that meaningfully connect with their readers—the stories that keep you up all night so you know what happens next. We are excited by books that are provocative within a familiar context—we love writers that can subvert a reader’s expectations.

WLS provides our clients with support, experience, and the assurance that their literary careers are in reliable hands. We believe in passionate representation, open-minded mediation, and a quality, professional presence in an unpredictable industry.

Kirsten Wolf is open to both fiction and non-fiction for all ages, though is most interested in children’s, middle grade, and young adult books.

She is actively seeking new and inventive picture books, young adult featuring believable, honest voices, and is especially keen to acquire fresh, original middle grade.

Regarding adult fiction, she is looking for commercial women's fiction, particularly romance and erotica, and gothic/horror novels, as well as aggressive and provocative speculative/edgy fiction.

Regarding adult non-fiction, she is drawn to new stories told in new ways, such as smart pop culture and humor books, the website/blog-to-book format, and very recent history, especially of things like the internet and the way the world has changed over the past 25 years. Because of her background as a chef, she is eager to acquire cookbooks and food writing in general.

She is not currently considering academic non-fiction or business books.
