New YA and MG agent: Ali McDonald

New agents trying to build their list are a great opportunity for writers seeking representation. The Rights Factory has announced that Ali McDonald is a new associate agent. She began at the agency in January 2009 in an editorial capacity.

Focusing on young adult and middle-grade, Ali says:

“The fantastic worlds of children’s literature transformed my life. The works of Beatrix Potter, Lewis Carroll, and C.S. Lewis helped define my character. Nothing could be more rewarding than now having the opportunity to bring talented new voices to today’s young readers.”

Three of my favorite authors growing up too.

She’s launching her list with three clients and hopes to have 25 by the end of the year. So, polish up those query letters.

Write On!
