UPDATE: As of 2013, it appears Liat is no longer
with Serendipity. Do not query him.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Liat Justin of Serendipity 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 Liat: Liat Justin is an associate agent with the Serendipity Literary Agency. Liat graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Studies. As an undergrad, Liat simultaneously enrolled in Boston University’s Certificate Program in Book Publishing and Digital Media. Liat then moved back to New York where she began her publishing career as an intern at PMA Literary and Film Management. Soon after, Liat joined the team at Serendipity. In addition to her passion for reading, Liat has a love for film, traveling, going to concerts, and doing puzzles. Liat dislikes spicy food, going to the dentist, and cooked peppers.
She is seeking: "Liat is actively seeking to represent a broad range of projects and is open to emerging authors. Her sweet spot genres include narrative nonfiction (especially ‘big idea’ books), YA, historical fiction, pop culture, humor, sports-related, and speculative fiction. While Liat is very open to a variety of genres, she is currently not interested in romance, Christian fiction, and thrillers."
How to submit: Serendipity requires all submissions through a submission form on their agency website, no matter if you are querying for your adult works, nonfiction, or children's books. (Look at "Author Submissions" on the upper-middle part of the webpage.)
