Send a Query to Jenniea Carter at New Leaf Literary & Media

Hey there ^-^/

A few things to note:

1. I'm a Literary Associate at New Leaf Literary & Media with a growing list focusing on children's and adult, fiction and nonfiction. Some non-client recent favorites that are reflective of my taste include THE MARVELLERS by Dhonielle Clayton, AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir, SADIE by Courtney Summers, FRESHWATER by Akwaeke Emezi, and HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE by Jeaniene Frost.

2. Please follow our submission guidelines:

3. For graphic novel authors/author-illustrators, in addition to the query letter in the appropriate space, please paste an outline of your project into the space provided for sample pages, and attach and/or link sample art.

4. If you're unable to use Query Manager, please send your query to with my name in the subject line.

5. Please do not query multiple agents at New Leaf at the same time. We do share queries internally, but you're always welcome to query another New Leaf agent if eight weeks has passed with no response from the agent you're currently querying (due to the volume of queries, we are unfortunately unable to respond to each one).

Thank you for considering me for your work!
