if it’s too difficult for grown-ups, write for children


I’m a very lucky agent, readers. In the six and a half years since I founded KT Literary, we’ve had multiple New York Times bestsellers, foreign sales out the wazoo, film options, and more great reviews than I can count! And after all that, 18 months ago I was smart enough to hire Renee Nyen when she approached me with an interest in agenting, and I’m delighted that she’s starting to look for projects of her own to represent.

To that end, we’re undertaking a small change in our submission policies. We still want to see a query letter with the first three pages within the body of your email (no attachments), with the subject line “Query: [Your title}”. But now, if you’d like to send your query to me, please email it to katequery@ktliterary.com. If you want Renee to look at it, please email it to reneequery@ktliterary.com.

We’re both seeking young adult and middle grade fiction. I’ve stated my interests in the past on my blog, in several interviews like this one and more recently, this one, and here is a great round up of lots of information. Renee was recently featured on the Mother.Write. (Repeat.) blog and on Writers Digest. If you have further questions about our individual interests, you can throw them in the comments, or find us on Twitter at @DaphneUn and @Renee_Nyen.

And if don’t want to choose, feel free to still use the old queries@ktliterary.com address. In the future, that may be reviewed by an intern, but for now, we’re both still looking at those queries as well.
