Amy Bishop-Wycisk (why-zick) joined Trellis Literary Management in 2023 after eight years with Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. She represents a wide-ranging list in fiction, nonfiction, and YA. Across the board, she has a special interest in underrepresented voices, especially from the AAPI community. In fiction, she’s seeking upmarket and book club fiction, stories with an element of mystery or suspense, and is always looking for a propulsive plot married with beautiful writing. She’s eagerly looking for historical fiction, literary horror, and SFF written by women of color, coming-of-age-stories, and retellings from around the world. In nonfiction, her tastes trend toward expert-driven narrative nonfiction, cultural criticism, history, and pop culture; regardless of genre, books that are engaging with a contemporary conversation are always of interest. In YA, she’d love books with murder and intrigue, featuring unexpected places and unexpected heroines; more immigrant stories; queer stories; girls quietly (or loudly) working for justice, and of course, a light-hearted contemporary romp to balance out all the murder. Her incredible clients have been NYT, USA Today, and Indie Bestsellers, a Reese’s Book Club pick, and winners of the James Beard Award and Edgar Awards. Though she grew up upstate, she currently resides in Queens with her sweet husband and very demanding cat.
