New Literary Agent Alert: Bree Ogden of Red Sofa Literary

Reminder: Newer agents are golden opportunities for new writers because they’re likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time and postage. She is seeking: Middle Grade, Young Adult and Graphic Novels. "I am also open to picture book queries, but it has to be really stunning and unique."
