About Jennifer: Founder Jennifer Azantian began her agenting career in 2011, first as an intern and then as an assistant and associate, at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. In 2014, after working with senior agent and entertainment lawyer Paul Levine, Jennifer opened her own agency specializing in genre fiction. Jennifer brings to her clients a passion for literature born of a writer’s heart and an editorial eye honed from reviewing thousands of projects both for herself and as submissions manager at the Dijkstra Agency. This, coupled with the guidance and superior contracts knowledge of Paul Levine, empowers the Jennifer Azantian Literary Agency to confidently commit to negotiating the very best terms for its talented authors as it guides their careers to success.

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 submit: queries [at] azantianlitagency.com. Send your query letter, 1-2 page synopsis, and first 10-15 pages of your ms pasted into an email (no attachments). If you work was requested personally by Jennifer (at a conference, etc), or was referred by a current client, or is being submitted exclusively, please say so in the email subject line.
