A graduate of Princeton University with a degree in English Literature and a lifelong bookworm, Stacy Testa joined Writers House in 2011 and has been building her own client list since 2013. She represents a wide range of authors, including novelist Kim Michele Richardson (Liar’s Bench), memoirist Clara Bensen (No Baggage), and journalist Rory Kress (The Stranger at the Foot of the Bed), to name a few.
Stacy is currently seeking literary fiction, upmarket women’s fiction, and realistic young adult fiction, particularly stories with international settings, unique subcultures, historical hooks, magical realism, and powerful women. On the nonfiction side, she is interested in acquiring remarkable memoirs, humor writing, narrative nonfiction, investigative journalism, and prescriptive titles with strong platforms. Broadly speaking, she is drawn to anything with an interest in social justice, a compelling narrative voice, and/or a great sense of humor.
