New Agent Alert: Naomi Hackenberg of The Elaine English Literary Agency

Update: March 2011 – An auto-reply says Naomi
has left the EELA. It appears Naomi is not currently
an agent at this time.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Naomi Hackenberg of The Elaine English 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 Naomi: She has sold foreign translation rights for The Elaine English Literary Agency and assisted Elaine with her commercial fiction projects since September 2008. She is currently looking to build her own list. Her academic background is in Creative Writing and American Studies, and she holds a Bachelor’s degree from The George Washington University and a Master’s degree from The University of Chicago. Naomi is a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and an associate member of the Association of Authors’ Representatives.



She is seeking: young adult fiction of all kinds (including contemporary, literary, romance, dystopian, multicultural, paranormal, and sci-fi) and middle grade fiction (in particular, she would love to find a great middle grade series). In adult fiction, she is accepting pitches for romance (especially historical, gothic, and urban fantasy), women’s fiction, mysteries, and psychological and legal thrillers. She does not represent nonfiction, inspirational, or picture books.
