New Literary Agent Alert: Taylor Haggerty of Waxman Leavell Literary Agency

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Fiction Agents, Literary Agent, New Agency Alerts, What's New, Young Adult Literary Agents Tags: historical fiction, historical romance.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Taylor Haggerty of Waxman Leavell 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 Taylor: “I am a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and received a master’s degree from Emerson College’s Publishing and Writing program. Prior to joining Waxman Leavell in 2013, I worked at the Gersh Agency.”

(Query letter pet peeves — Agents Tell All.)

She is seeking: “I am drawn to novels with a compelling voice and grounded, relatable characters that pull me into their world from the start. My favorite books have strong emotional elements that stay with me long after I finish reading. My current interests include young adult fiction, historical fiction, and historical romance. I do not represent screenplays.”

How to submit: taylorsubmit [at] waxmanleavell.com. “To submit a project, please send a query letter only via email. Do not send attachments, though for fiction you may include 5-10 pages of your manuscript in the body of your e-mail. Please do not query more than one agent at our agency simultaneously.”
