Liat Justin joins Serendipity Literary Agency, seeks big idea books, YA, historical fiction and speculative fiction


Serendipity Literary Agency
305 Gates Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11216

Liat Justin has joined Serendipity Literary Agency as an Associate Agent. Before joining Serendipity, Liat began her publishing career as an intern at PMA Literary and Film Management. 

In addition to her passion for reading, Liat has a love for film, traveling, going to concerts, and doing puzzles. Liat dislikes spicy food, going to the dentist, and cooked peppers.

Liat is actively seeking to represent a broad range of projects and is open to emerging authors. Her sweet spot genres include narrative nonfiction (especially ‘big idea’ books), YA, historical fiction, pop culture, humor, sports-related, and speculative fiction.  While Liat is very open to a variety of genres, she is currently not interested in romance, Christian fiction, and thrillers. 

Submissions:
Serendipity has a stupid submissions form, but they do ask for the first 50 pages or first three chapters, so that’s good. Fiction submission guidelines here. Nonfiction guidelines here. Children’s books guidelines here.

More about Serendipity and agents looking for authors here.

Brian Henry will lead a “Writing for Children and for Young Adults” workshop in Newmarket on Saturday, September 22 (see here), and he'll lead a "How to Get Published" workshop on Saturday, October 13, in Toronto with Monica Pacheco of The Anne McDermid literary agency (see here). But the best step you can take toward getting published is to take one of Brian’s weekly courses, such as The Next Step in Creative Writing (see here), though beginners will want to start with Welcome to Creative Writing (see here).

See Brian's full schedule here, including writing workshops and creative writing courses in Kingston, Peterborough, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Georgetown, Milton, Oakville, Burlington, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Dundas, Kitchener, Guelph, London, Woodstock, Orangeville, Newmarket, Barrie, Gravenhurst, Sudbury, Muskoka, Peel, Halton, the GTA, Ontario and beyond.
