Linda Epstein, a literary agency at the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency, has a new “wish list” for books she wants to represent in 2016.
Linda represents authors of children’s literature, including picture books, middle grade and young adult fiction and nonfiction. She wants to represent a more diverse client list and encourages people of color to pitch to her.
For middle grade and young adult, she wants to see realistic contemporary, mystery, literary, historical fiction, speculative fiction and magical realism, sci-fi, anything feminist, and mythical re-tellings. She also wants to see more non-fiction and narrative non-fiction for children.
