MACHER Literary Agent Rescue has a long history of placing aggressive-passive and empathy-deficient literary agents in the decaying homes of struggling writers. We are a dedicated volunteer group, serving the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, rescuing empathy-deficient literary agents from all over and all under.
For seven years, MACHER Literary Agent Rescue has rescued countless literary-agents from swank bars and overrated spas.
Our founder, Peg Mokrass, was introduced to the concept of literary-agent rescue in 2005. Having been ignored entirely by hundreds of literary-agents because she wrote short stories, Mokrass developed a unique sensitivity to the problems of the literary agents who were, themselves, under siege. As if fated, Mokrass connected with anemic, yet gorgeous New York literary-agent Faisa Tronk. The two met and spent days in an absinthe bar, discussing what needed be done and what did not need to be done at all. Tronk’s specialties were vast, her rudeness infamous. Ideas and explatives popped, exploded, and spun around. A team was founded.
Over time, Mokrass and Tronk formed Bay Area/NYC MACHER Literary Agent Rescue as a synthesis of this progression.
As time went on, the group grew and consequently expanded their reach toward homeless literary agents of all sizes, shapes and breeds.
Agent-Homespin, originally invented by Mokrass, is modeled internationally.
Agent-Homespin involves clinical, daily exposure to monopoly money and grocery list-making for agents with serious empathy-deficiencies.

“Let’s face it. The book-selling business is war. War creates pain. Pain is painful. Each and every literary agent has something unique to offer. We learn much by opening our hearts to these slightly abusive companions.” – Peg Mokrass
