New Literary Agent Alert: Claire Dunnington of the Vicky Bijur Literary Agency

2013 UPDATE: Claire is no longer agenting.
Do not query her.


Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Claire Dunnington of the Vicky Bijur Literary Agency) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.




About Claire: Claire Dunnington is a literary agent at the Vicky Bijur Literary Agency. She began working at the Vicky Bijur Literary Agency in 2006. She has a BA in Expository Writing from Brown University and an MFA from Columbia University in Nonfiction. The agency is on Twitter here.

(Hate writing synopses? Here are nuts & bolts pointers for you.)

She is seeking: YA fiction, and in particular looking for strong realistic YA fiction and literary middle-grade fiction. (For reference, some authors she enjoyed when she was growing up were Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Louis Sachar, Jerry Spinelli, Noel Streatfeild, Zilpha Keatley Snyder, and Virginia Euwer Wolff). She is happy to consider dystopian and futuristic YA, but is much less interested in vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and the like.
