Carnicelli Literary Management is a boutique literary agency with offices in New York City and Rhinebeck, NY. Founded in 2004 by Matthew Carnicelli, it represents a wide assortment of authors writing on a broad range of subjects. Its main areas of focus are topical and narrative nonfiction, including current events, history, biography, memoir, science, business, health, psychology, and popular culture. The agency also represents authors writing commercial and accessible literary fiction, but it does not represent poetry, plays, screenplays, or books for children or young adults.
The agency's goal is to discover important new voices that have something unique and important to contribute to our world, be they experts in their fields or simply great storytellers. Relying on Matthew Carnicelli's experience as a hands-on editor, the agency is involved with an author's work every step of the way, from refining and clarifying an idea and developing a strong book proposal, to selling the project to the right publisher, developing the actual manuscript, and monitoring the book's progress after publication.
