Trena White

representing adult authors

Mandates: I specialize in upmarket, accessible non-fiction that challenges current conceptions, whether through a “big ideas” book or narrative. I am drawn to entrepreneurs and people who are innovators in their fields and writing about current affairs, business, culture, politics, technology, and the environment. Journalists who are obsessed with a particular beat (gangs, climate change, etc.) always welcome. Fascinating, exceptionally well written life stories, usually with a current affairs hook. I am most interested in authors who have an existing platform.

Guidelines: Submissions queries via email only. Authors are encouraged to email a cover letter with a maximum 20-page writing sample/excerpt embedded in the body of the email, along with a publishing history and synopsis. Please don’t send attachments. Please note if other agents are also considering the project.
