As of May 2015, Bree is with Red Sofa Literary. She was formerly with
Martin Literary Management and D4EO Literary.


Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Bree Ogden of Martin Literary Management) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile, and when this post about Bree Ogden came through my RSS feed, I decided to try querying her with my picture book. Within a week I had signed on as a new client with Martin Literary Management. Thank you for featuring new agents ~ I never would have found Bree without this column!
