UPDATE: It appears that since I wrote this alert a few weeks back, the
submissions page on the agency website now says "No unsolicited
queries." You can check that page from time to time, but do not
submit until that notice comes down, or Jacob puts out a specific
call for submissions. Thanks. Check out the rest of our New
Agent Alerts for potential markets to query.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Jacob Moore of Zachary Schuster Harmsworth) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
