The Oxford Editors, led be Cherry Mosteshar, has had great success with its Agent Finder Service, but there are still some books we believe in passionately, but with the crowded market many agents are not taking on new and unknown writers.
So what to do?
With so many publishers closed to direct submissions and agents reluctant to take on those not already famous for something, we are going to dip our toe into the Literary Agency world.
We will keep you posted.
Our founder, Cherry Mosteshar, believes that celebrities and those famous in other fields are taking up too much of the market and too little of the new talent we need and readers crave is being published, instead it is left at the bottom of the slush piles.
If you think you have a masterpiece then send your query letter, first three chapter and short synopsis of the chapters, marked for Cherry Mosteshar, to firstname.lastname@example.org
I started The Oxford Editors in 2007 to help writers at every stage and in every genre. We have a strong academic tradition as well as working with writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We also help children's writers, playwrights, screen writers and business writers.
We offer a wide set of services for writers from mentoring, manuscript assessment, copy editing, proof reading, ghost writing, query letter writing, literary agent search, and much more. We will write your blog for you, perfect that speech or help you self-publish that book. If you write, our team of published authors, publishing industry experts and academics can help you.
I am an award-winning writer and editor working on academic, non-fiction and fiction manuscripts. I regularly work with fiction and children’s writers as well as doctoral students. I have also edited books and papers for academics throughout the world, and for many authors at publishers including Oxford University Press, Harvard University Press and Yale University Press. I have also guided many writers of fiction to publishing success. I am an author, ghost writer and an international journalist. After the publication of my book, Unveiled: Love and Death Among the Ayatollahs, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei condemned me as ‘a notorious man-hater’ for the book’s strong attack on the violation of women’s rights in Iran.
I also work with writers as a mentor and I have guided authors of fiction, non-fiction and academic works. My latest book, a crime thriller, will be published soon.
I worked for many years at The Financial Times, The Independent and The Guardian and has been a regular contributor to The Economist. I have also written for The Washington Post, The New York Times, The South China Morning Post and many other newspapers and magazines worldwide. I have appeared on the BBC – including Radio 4’s the Today programme and on Newsnight.
I have edited several major academic studies, and also edited books by professors at Oxford and Harvard – among others. As well as writing fiction for adults and children. I have also written several screenplays.
