As of Fall 2013, Jill Corcoran opened her own agency,
Jill Corcoran Literary. Query her there.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Jill Corcoran of Herman Agency, Inc.) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
Kind of a double notification here. Jill Corcoran is an associate agent at Herman Agency, Inc., who is 1) looking for submissions (children's stuff), and 2) blogging about her adventures and passing on advice to writers.
She is seeking middle grade and young adult. See her blog here, where she discusses things such as changes in the publishing world, how she evaluates a submission, and where to go to soak up advice on query writing.
How to submit: See her Publishers Marketplace page, as she switched agencies in 2013.
