Query Jenissa Graham at BookEnds Literary Agency

Welcome to my Query Manager! Thank you for considering me on your path to finding an agent. I understand that this is a pivotal moment in a writer's journey, and I'm so grateful that you are trusting me with your story!

*Please note: You can only query one Bookends Literary Agent at a time*

Currently, I am seeking submissions for Middle Grade, YA, New Adult, and select Adult projects. I am NOT currently open to picture books, graphic novels, historical fiction, or nonfiction.

**The Pandora's Box selection is ONLY to be used if I requested to read a submission outside of the category/genre I'm currently open to**

If you've determine we're a good fit, please note that I reply to all queries and make an attempt to do so within 6-10 weeks. For requested materials and completes, my response is usually within 8-12 weeks. I'm so excited to read your work!

In cases where accommodation is needed, you can instead email me your query and first 10 pages (both pasted into the email) to jgraham@bookendsliterary.com.
