Keely Boeving is an Agent with WordServe Literary. After receiving her B.A. in English from the University of Virginia, she went on to attend the Denver Publishing Institute and then began her career in New York working in the editorial department at Oxford University Press, where she acquired books for the trade history list. She moved back to Colorado in 2014 and began her own freelance editorial company before joining WordServe the following year. She lives in Denver with her husband and their twins.

Keely is looking for well-researched nonfiction books in the areas of health and wellness, business (especially books targeting women in the workplace), parenting and family life, social justice, and religious studies; as well as projects from diverse and under-represented voices. For the Christian market, she is seeking books in the areas of Christian Living, spiritual transformation, devotion and worship, and women’s topics including motherhood, relationships and marriage, work-life balance, and calling. She is also seeking narrative nonfiction and memoir, and occasionally represents smart, well-crafted contemporary and literary fiction. In the children’s market, she represents middle grade and the occasional picture book; she loves stories that feature characters who are quirky and complex, and books that allow children to see themselves in the pages, perhaps for the first time.
She is not looking for thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, or romance.
