Query + Partial Critique + Follow-up Call with Agent Joanna Volpe
Joanna Volpe, president and agent at New Leaf Literary, is offering the following:
- A query critique of your Middle Grade or YA project.
- A 10-page critique of your Middle Grade or YA manuscript.
- A 30-minute phone call to discuss your work and any other publishing inquiries you might have.
Joanna Volpe represents all brands of fiction (commercial, literary and genre) and has an affinity for stories that feature nuanced characters and complex relationship dynamics. She is currently on the lookout for stories with rich settings, diverse and unique perspectives, and she has a soft spot for speculative and/or fantastical elements. She’s personally not the kind of reader that needs a romance in her novels, though she does appreciate a good one.
