Matt Wagner is a literary agent with Fresh Books Literary Agency. Matt says: “I love working with fun and useful non-fiction and reference titles, as well as online training. I work personally with my clients toward their long-term goals.
I try to keep up to date with client news and links to news of note from the publishing industry at large. For regular updates, or to see what catches my eye, you can follow me on Twitter. If you’d like to send me a query, please check out my submissions page.
Prior to founding Fresh Books, I was an agent with Waterside Productions 1989-2004, where I sold in excess of 1000 books to over 30 publishers, generating more than 25 million dollars in author revenue.
I hold a B.A. in Creative Writing and Literature from U.C. Santa Cruz, where I spent a year in the stacks at McHenry Library shelving (and perusing) books. I also studied playwriting and dramaturgy in the Professional Theatre Training Program at U.C. San Diego.”
