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: 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.
