15 Minute Pitch Session with literary agent Lisa Leshne.
Lisa Leshne is most interested in narrative and prescriptive non-fiction, especially on social justice, sports, health, wellness, business, political and parenting topics. She loves memoirs that transport the reader into another person’s head and give a voyeuristic view of someone else’s extraordinary experiences. Lisa also enjoys literary and commercial fiction and some young adult and middle-grade books that take the reader on a journey and are just plain fun to read.
Prior to founding the Leshne Agency in 2011, Lisa Leshne was a literary agent for three years at LJK Literary.
