about

Born and raised in Bergamo (IT), Miriam Cortinovis (they/she) moved to the United States in 2013. They discovered a passion for composing fantastical novels soon after, finding herself alone in a new country that didn't speark her language. After floundering to adapt to the American lifestyle, they enrolled at DePaul University (Chicago), and there they earned a BA in Creative Writing and an MA in Writing & Publishing.

With two years of experience as college writing tutor, Miriam embarked post-grad in a once-in-a-lifetime internship with Aevitas Creative Management, ended December 2022. After another intense and enlightening training period at ArtHouse Literary in 2023, they've been promoted to Associate Agent in January 2024. They're eager to receive stellar queries and represent extraordinary clients in the speculative umbrella across age targets.

In the meantime, they're drafting their debut novel #oftl, a queer adult portal fantasy (info in books).

When not consumed by re-reading The Locked Tomb for the tenth time, Miriam enjoys playing Dungeon & Dragons with their friends and Valorant with their partner.
