Arc Literary Management

Dani Segelbaum joined Arc Literary in 2024 after three years at the Carol Mann Agency. She began her publishing career as an editorial assistant at HarperCollins Publishers, focusing primarily on highly designed non-fiction titles. She previously worked as a literary assistant at New Leaf Literary & Media, working with established and debut authors.  Born and raised in Minneapolis, Dani is a graduate of Boston University’s College of Communication where she studied journalism and political science. She has been a voracious reader for as long as she can remember.  Dani represents both fiction and non-fiction and hopes to work with authors from diverse backgrounds to tell stories that are important to them. For non-fiction titles, Dani is seeking books with an emphasis on history and politics, self-help, women’s issues, popular culture, and current events. Dani also loves narrative non-fiction, business, lifestyle, and cookbooks. In fiction, Dani is looking for contemporary and upmarket adult fiction including debut, historical, rom-coms, and women’s fiction. She loves compelling narrators and is drawn to writing that is voice-driven, highly transporting, and features unique perspectives and marginalized voices. Dani spends her free time playing fetch with her Aussiedoodle and trying new restaurants around town. Her guilty pleasures include collecting cookbooks (seriously, she has way too many), reading the newspaper in the middle of the night, and baking dozens of delicious baked goods for friends and family (she does use the cookbooks).  Dani is addicted to the joy of discovering new work, she is always open to queries. You can follow Dani on Instagram and Twitter. Query her via Query Manager.  She is a member of the AALA .
