New Agent at Greenhouse Literary

Greenhouse Literary, a cool newer agency started by Brit Sarah Davies, has recently snagged a new agent: Julia Churchill. Like Sarah, Julia hails from the UK . I'm not sure if Julia will be taking on American authors, but her joining Greenhouse means that Sarah will have more time to devote to American writers, so that's good news for juvenile writers.

We are NOT looking for picturebook texts or illustrators, non-fiction, educational or religious/inspirational work, poetry, or writing aimed at adults. If you think your work fulfils these criteria, please send a one-page query email to submissions@greenhouseliterary.com. This should include a short synopsis of your plot, a few lines about yourself and your writing ‘credentials’, as well as the first chapter or first five pages (whichever is the shorter) of your manuscript pasted into the body of the email. Sorry, but we no longer accept e-mail attachments or snail-mail submissions (we try to be as paper free as possible). If we are interested we will reply with directions on what material should be sent next, and in what format."
