Chapter Book Literary Agents Looking for New Writers 2019-2020

Authors of early readers and chapter books sometimes fail to get a successful agent, or any agent at all, for two reasons. First, because it’s hard to figure out which publishing agents are interested in chapter books! Though chapter book literary agents appear in print and online literary agency directories and databases, it’s not always clear which of them are interested in authors of chapter books. It’s easy to see which agents want picture books, middle grade books, and young adult books. But there aren’t nearly as many writer representatives seeking chapter books. That’s one of the reasons I wrote this article, to make it easier for authors to see which publishing want early readers.

The other reason authors of chapter books and early readers sometimes fail to get a successful agent, or any agent at all, is because they make incorrect assumptions. For example, some writers of books for early readers believe the most powerful CB agents won’t give new authors of chapter books the attention they deserve. Sometimes that’s true, but not usually. And it’s almost always best to be represented by one of the most powerful and influential CB agents with the best connections and the best track record of sales, instead of a new literary representing chapter books without a solid track record.

You should query new book agents seeking chapter books, but only if you’ve already queried the most successful book agents representing early readers. Don’t incorrectly think the most successful CB publishing agents won’t read your query or offer you a literary agency agreement–even if you’re an aspiring or new author of chapter books. Some of the most successful writer representatives, including those who represent chapter books, will be closed to submissions. But most aren’t. I know because I’ve helped more than 150 authors, including unpublished authors of chapter books, get offers from some of the most powerful children’s book agents and children’s book literary agencies.

Chapter Book Literary Agents 2019-2020 | 35 Early Reader Book Agents

Below you’ll find 35 chapter book literary agents. However, please keep in mind that this is only a partial selection of publishing agents looking for chapter books. Use our literary agency database to learn more about these CB author representatives and submit your query letter. And remember (important) many writer representatives who handle chapter books don’t indicate that information in their agent bios. Some of them simply say they’re interested in “Children’s Books,” “Juvenile Books,” etc. Those “umbrella” terms aren’t very helpful to authors trying to figure out if that means every type of children’s book, one type, or more than one type. If in doubt, after you’ve queried the author representatives you know accept submissions for chapter books, you might want to cast a wider net and start querying some of the agents who simply say they’re looking for “Children’s Books,” “Juvenile Books,” etc.

Chapter Book Literary Agencies 2019-2020 | Early Reader Book Agencies

Again, please note, this is only a partial selection of literary agencies seeking chapter books. Use our literary agency database to learn more about all writer representatives accepting children’s books. And remember, many author representatives who want early readers and chapter books don’t share that information in their agent bios. Some of those publishing agents simply say they’re seeking “Children’s Books,” “Juvenile Books,” etc. So, after you’ve sent queries to the writer representatives you’re sure are open to submissions for early readers, consider querying more widely if you don’t yet have an agent. In the words, start pitching agents who merely say they’re seeking “Children’s Books,” “Juvenile Books,” etc.
