New Literary Agent Listing: Saffron Dodd

firstwriter.com – Tuesday November 1, 2022

I’m looking for fully realised, immersive, and creative worlds with standout characters. I love middle-grade fantasy and I’m looking for something filled with adventure, magic, and intrigue, with a strong and distinct voice. In contemporary middle-grade, I’m looking for witty and sharp protagonists with something to say and an interesting perspective on the world. In YA, I lean towards fantasy but would also love a solid mystery thriller or a shenanigan filled rom-com that does or says something new. I’m also keen to see stories set in the UK during the transitional period between sixth form/college and university. Above all, I’m keen to see work from historically excluded and underrepresented writers in the UK.

New Literary Agent Listing: Kaitlyn Sanchez

firstwriter.com – Friday October 28, 2022

Looking for children’s books (picture books through YA) in all categories, including graphic novels, nonfiction, and illustration. She is incredibly eclectic in her tastes, with a great affinity for emotional stories as well as funny stories. Always looking for diversity in all forms, including but not limited to BIPOC, neurodiversity, and LGBTQ+. Loves working with artists, so she’s always on the lookout for great illustrators, author-illustrators, and graphic novelists. Generally leans PG and PG-13 for most submissions, though some intensity here and there is fine.
