2 Literary Agents Seeking Clients

If you are an unpublished writer looking for a literary agent, your best bet is someone who is building a client list. These agents are hungry for success, and will go the extra mile for their clients.

The only drawback to working with new agents is that they generally don’t have extensive contacts in the publishing industry. However, the agency they work for might.

Reading the bios of all the agents in an agency will give you a good idea of the breadth of the agency, as well as its contacts. (Which publishing houses, for example, has the agency worked with?)

Beth Campbell of BookEnds, LLC

About Beth: After interning for BookEnds as an undergrad, Beth joined the company as a literary assistant in September 2012. Since then she's made her way up through the ranks and was promoted to Agent in April of 2017. She's diligently building her client list and is always excited to meet an author with an excellent story. She's also works as the company's royalty manager--processing statements for all of BookEnds' clients.

What she is looking for: Beth is primarily interested in science fiction, fantasy, and YA books of all sub-genres. She's also actively looking for romantic suspense and mystery titles, particularly those with a darker flavor. She loves women-centered stories across all genres and has an immense affinity for narratives featuring strong friendships, found families, and diverse characters of all stripes (race, sexuality, gender--you name it)

Sarah Nego of Corvisiero Literary

NO LONGER AN AGENT

What she is looking for: middle grade and young adult fiction manuscripts, particularly speculative fiction.

Contact: “To query me, send your query letter, 1-2 page synopsis and the first 5 pages pasted into the body of an email to Query [at] CorvisieroAgency.com. Please use ‘Query for Sarah’ as your subject line. I will respond to all queries. If I have not responded and you queried me prior to the dates listed above, feel free to send a follow-up email. Otherwise, please wait to follow-up unless you receive an offer of representation from another agent.”

The Details: "I am only accepting middle grade and young adult fiction manuscripts. I'm open to any genre within those age groups, but prefer speculative fiction. Contemporary is not my favorite, but I will look at it. I am not interested in seeing poetry, novels in verse, short stories/novellas or anything focused on saving the environment (I'm all for recycling, but don't want to represent it)."
