List of Young Adult and New Adult Literary Agent image

The young adult (YA) and new adult (NA) genres are fairly new in the publishing industry, and not all literary agents are interested in these genres.

That’s why our team put together this list of young adult and new adult literary agents that are currently accepting submissions from authors.

If you’re not familiar with the differences between new adult and young adult books, you should research these genres online in more detail before you go about contacting a literary agent.

Make sure your book actually fits the genre, or your chances of landing an agent will be slim to none.

If you need help with writing a query letter or how to go about contacting a literary agent, make sure to read our free guide on how to get a literary agent.
