Erin Harris

A few of the Authors I represent:

About Me:

I’m an agent who is passionate about representing debut and established authors across a range of categories. I’m a graduate of the MFA program in Creative Writing at the New School, and I bring a strong editorial eye and hands-on approach to my agenting practice. I’ve worked in publishing for a decade, and for me, there is no greater joy than falling in love with a manuscript and forging a long-term professional partnership with an author.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR:

I represent books for both adults and teens. In YA, I’m seeking bold, brave, and lyrical voices. I gravitate toward books that engage with issues of social justice, and I’m especially committed to representing #Ownvoices and to bringing underrepresented viewpoints and stories to the forefront of the cultural conversation. I’m mainly seeking YA contemporary, YA fantasy with unique world-building, and YA novels with mystery, suspense, or speculative elements – though I remain open to being surprised by what grabs me. I value storytelling and language equally, and I’m keen to champion novels with strong female protagonists. (I do not represent middle grade or picture books).

HOW TO Submit:

I read my queries myself, and I’d be delighted to hear from you! Please send your query letter and the first ten pages of your manuscript (pasted into the body of your email) to: eharris@foliolitmanagement.com
