An agent with Massie & McQuilkin (MMQLIT) (see other agents at this agency).

About

RAYHANÉ SANDERS — agent (joined 2014) — attended NYU and began her publishing career at Newsweek Magazine. She then moved to book publishing, working first for Penguin’s Dutton and Gotham Books and then for Wayne Kabak’s WSK Management and William Morris Endeavor, where she worked with New York Times bestselling and award-winning authors and broadcast journalists. She is a member of the American Association of Literary Agents (formerly AAR). She represents and is on the lookout for literary and historical fiction, upmarket book-club fiction, comic novels, short story collections, propulsive narrative nonfiction, essay collections, and memoir. Her authors include Lidia Yuknavitch, Daisy Hernandez, Te-Ping Chen, and Hari Ziyad. She likes projects that are voice-centered and site-specific, whether that be a place, profession, culture, or subculture. Though quality of writing is the most important factor, she is particularly interested in fresh voices telling fresh stories we haven’t heard before and is fond of immigrant stories and stories concerned with race, sexuality, cross-cultural themes, and notions of identity.
