Welcome, Morris Shamah!

I am delighted to welcome Morris Shamah as the newest member of  the Dystel & Goderich Literary Management team.  Morris joins us today as our royalties manager. He is also going to begin building his own list of clients.

Morris graduated from New York University and previously interned at two literary agencies where he acquired some well rounded experience in our business.  He is interested in thrillers, mysteries, men’s fiction, mainstream super hero illustrated novels and up-market graphic novels.  He is also interested in Judaica.

Please join me in welcoming Morris to our “family.”  And be on the lookout for his first blog post which will be up later this week.

  1. Welcome Morris! Looking forward to reading your blogs, but I shan’t be submitting to you as my book is a YA fantasy, and I’ve already submitted to Rachel.

    Welcome Morris to a great literary agency, and it seems that many of the literary agents at Dystel came from NYU (me too ..:)). Maybe you can explain in your next blog what are you looking for in Judaica. Thanks.

    Welcome Morris,

    Congratulations on your new positions.
    Recently read the book, Have a Little Faith, by Mitch Albom. Great story. The genre I hope to break into is children’s. If you are able to share any tips on writing/illustrating for children, please do. Wishing you much success in receiving the manuscripts you desire.

    Thanks so much with regard to providing my family a great update about this issue on your web site. Please understand that if the new submit appears or in case just about any changes arise on the present submission, I’d consider reading through a lot more as well as finding out how to help to make good utilization of those approaches you talk about. Thanks for your time and consideration of other people by making this web site available.
