Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Rachel Orr and Becca Stumpf at Prospect Agency, LLC) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
Finding one new agent building her client list is a nice treat. But what if you had two at the same agency? That's exactly what's happened at the Prospect Agency. Here's the down-low on these two new(er) agents. Some links at the bottom will help you submit.
"Rachel Orr (firstname.lastname@example.org) joined Prospect Agency in 2007, after eight rewarding years editing children's books for HarperCollins. She enjoys the challenge of tackling a wide variety of projects—both fiction and nonfiction—particularly picture books, beginning readers, chapter books, middle-grade/YA novels, and works of nonfiction.
"Rachel is currently taking on new clients."
"Becca Stumpf, (email@example.com)junior agent, joined Prospect Agency in 2006 after working as an assistant at Writers House Literary Agency. As a reader, Becca falls hard for sentences that are beautifully crafted, for humor in unexpected places, and for characters that come to life and follow you around for a while. Becca is looking for adult and YA literary and mainstream fiction that surprises. She's also interested in select nonfiction, including narrative nonfiction, journalistic perspectives, fashion, film studies, travel, art, and informed analysis of cultural phenomena. She has a special interest in aging in America and environmental issues. "Becca is currently taking on new clients."
