Jenna Pocius is a literary agent with Red Fox Literary. She has a background in children’s editorial and was most recently Editor at Little Bee Books before joining Red Fox. During her time as an editor she acquired everything from board books to YA novels, and many of her books have gone on to receive numerous starred reviews and awards.
As an agent, Jenna is looking for clever picture book texts, character-driven novels with strong voice and world-building, nonfiction that sheds light on little-known but significant stories, and illustrations that are stylish with a touch of whimsy; while she is open in terms of genre, she gravitates toward contemporary/realistic fiction, magical realism, and fantasy. She is also a sucker for animal stories, especially dogs.
Jenna lives in Connecticut with her husband.
