2 Literary Agents Seeking Clients

I am a fan of new agents. They work hard, and they are passionate about their work. They are also passionate about their authors, and will go the extra mile for them.

As always, read the websites of their agencies carefully. Check to see what they have represented. And google their names to see if they pop up on AbsoluteWrite or any of the other forums writers frequent. 

Taylor Haggerty of Root Literary

About Taylor: Taylor is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and received a master’s degree from Emerson College’s Publishing and Writing program. Prior to joining Root Literary, she worked at Waxman Leavell and at the Gersh Agency.

What she is seeking: YA, MG and Romance. "In YA, I'm especially eager to find fast-paced, high-stakes fantasy with incredible and unique worldbuilding, magical realism, and accessible, character-driven SF. On the contemporary side of things, I'm looking for a smart, funny, romcom (bring on the banter!) and would love to find a romance that feels larger-than-life."

How to contact her: To submit a project, please send a query letter via email to:  submissions@rootliterary.com.  You may include 10 pages of your manuscript in the body of your email. Do not send attachments.


Jennifer Azantian of Jennifer Azantian Literary Agency


About Jennifer: Jennifer founded the Jennifer Azantian Literary Agency on February 1, 2014. Before starting her agency, she worked at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. She was the assistant for Elise Capron and Sandy Dijkstra as well as the office and submissions manager for the agency. After her time at Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency, she worked with the Paul Levine Literary Agency for several months, and it is under his mentorship that she started her own agency.

What she is seeking: Fantasy, science-fiction, and horror that focuses on characters that feel real, the kind whose stories she can get invested in regardless of extravagance in plot or setting. She is fascinated by the basic human truths that emerge at the heart of all the greatest fantasies. These are the kind of projects that she advocates. She is actively acquiring only science fiction and fantasy (including all of their subgenres) as well as smart, psychological horror for middle grade, young adult, new adult, and adult readers.

How to contact her: Send a query letter, 1-2 page synopsis and the first 10-15 pages of your manuscript in the body of an email to: queries@azantianlitagency.com
