Looking for a place to pitch your YA novel? A new Mediabistro article will help you pitch a YA-focused agency.
GalleyCat contributor Jeff Rivera wrote a Mediabistro article about how to pitch Evatopia Literary Management, a literary agency focused on YA and middle grade fiction. According to the article, the agency prefers to receive submissions directly through its website. Follow this link to submit your manuscript.
Here’s more from the article: “If you are a writer of YA or middle grade, you may have hit a sweet spot with this manager who is always on the lookout for material that appeals to young people and easily lends itself to film and television. Not only are the genres seemingly immune to the current down economy, but film rights to YA and middle grade projects are hot, hot, hot. Walshaw recently secured the television adaptation of client Kevin Emerson’s Oliver Nocturne series with Will Smith’s Overbrook Productions, is developing Jessica Brody’s The Fidelity Files, and is also looking to produce Gordon Korman’s On the Run.”
