Literary agents for Young Adult (YA) fiction

 

YA fiction has become a superselling genre in recent years. The Hary Potter books made it acceptable for adults to read children's fiction, and then the genre hit a whole mother-lode of superselling authors, such as Stephenie Meyer, Anthony Horowitz, Suzanne Collins and many more.

The fact that so many books are selling means that agents are - inevitably - very interested in the area and keen to take on outstanding work. But that doesn't mean that finding the right agent for you and your work is all that easy - there are just so many agents, and it's so hard figuring out what each one wants.

We've put a sample of YA agents in the list below - but do note that these names represent just  tiny sample of our overall database. You will get the most from Agent Hunter if you create and refine your own searches.
