Submit a Query to Kristin Ostby | The Greenhouse Literary Agency
Thank you for thinking of me for your work. To learn more about what I'm seeking to represent, please visit my page on the Greenhouse website.
In short, I am primarily seeking voicey, character-driven middle-grade as well as literary and contemporary young adult fiction. In particular, I am looking for stories with unabashedly intersectional overtones. I am also looking for illustrators who write picture books as well as graphic novelists—particularly those creating works for the younger end of the spectrum (5–7 years).
I DO NOT REPRESENT PICTURE BOOK MANUSCRIPTS unless you are already a client.
I also do not represent the following: poetry collections, short story collections, screenplays, erotica, and work for the Christian/inspirational market.
If you think we'd be a good fit, please fill out the form below. When submitting manuscripts, please upload Word documents instead of PDFs. Graphic novelists and picture book illustrators can enter 1 for their word count. (Do not stress about word count.)
Thank you! I look forward to receiving your work.
