3 New Literary Agents Seeking Literary Fiction, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Memoir, Women's Fiction & more

Here are three new agents expanding their client lists. Kristin van Ogtrop represents memoir, commercial women’s fiction, biography, lifestyle and big idea books driven by counterintuitive thinking. Lisa Leshne is most interested in narrative and prescriptive non-fiction, especially on social justice, sports, health, wellness, business, political and parenting topics. She loves memoirs that transport the reader into another person’s head and give a voyeuristic view of someone else’s extraordinary experiences. Lisa also enjoys literary and commercial fiction and some young adult and middle-grade books that take the reader on a journey and are just plain fun to read. Ryan Eichenwald is looking for Fantasy, Science Fiction, Paranormal, and Adventure, set in any time period and for any age group.

Always check the agency website before submitting. Agents may switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements can change.

If these agents don't suit your needs, you can find a comprehensive list of new and established agents seeking clients here: Agents Seeking Clients.

Ryan Eichenwald of Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency

Ryan Eichenwald started with the agency in August of 2018. Ryan attended college at Duke University, where he taught himself guitar, founded an a capella group (that quickly collapsed), and worked as an editor for The Archive, the Duke literary magazine. He graduated with high distinction in English and philosophy, and wrote a gaslamp fantasy novella for his thesis project. Ryan is a graduate of the Columbia Publishing Course, and can frequently be found singing, writing, or attempting not to set his kitchen on fire. He tends to read instead of sleep.

What he is seeking: Ryan is looking for Fantasy, Science Fiction, Paranormal, and Adventure, set in any time period and for any age group. (He longs to see fantasy fiction set in space. SPACE WIZARDS.) He is interested in fiction of any kind except erotic, and will be willing to review narrative nonfiction pieces as well. His preference is for Adult or Young Adult, but is interested in Middle Grade as well. Ryan is particularly partial to richly developed characters and settings, especially realistic or unusual magic systems. If you can make a fantasy world work in a rational manner, then he would DEFINITELY love to talk to you.

​How to submit: Please submit send a query, a 1-2 page synopsis, and the first 25 pages of your project to Ryan's Query Manager at http://QueryMe.Online/ryaneichenwald. You will receive an automatic response from Query Manager which lets you know your submission is in his inbox, and you can track your query’s progress. He’ll respond within 6 weeks, but only to projects that interest him.
