E.B. Moore is grateful to Grub Street, Boston’s independent writing center. Moore, who turned to writing after a career as a metal sculptor, participated in Grub Street’s Novel Incubator program, and it led to a two-book deal. (The Novel Incubator program is a 12-month MFA-level course open to 10 students a year.) Penguin has agreed to publish “An Unseemly Wife,” about a 19th-century Amish woman who crossed the country in a covered wagon with her husband and children, and its sequel. Moore was repped by Alice Tasman of the Jean Naggar Literary Agency, whom she met at Grub Street’s Muse and the Marketplace Conference.
