Léonicka Valcius


Areas of interest:

Léonicka is closed to submissions until April 2, 2018.

As I build my client list, I will be co-agenting with senior literary agents at Transatlantic.

I am eager to work with people of color, including (but not limited to) trans people, disabled people, religious minorities, and queer folks.

In Adult and Young Adult fiction, I like fun commercial fiction, romance that ranges from sweet to steamy, otherworldly fantasy, and sweeping historical fiction. I do not represent mysteries or thrillers.

In Adult non-fiction, I like narrative non-fiction that explains complex issues through the lens of a personal story. I am also seeking books that straddle the self-help/lifestyle line (#selfcare #liveyourbestlife) and the self-help/business line (#productivityhack #riseandgrind).

For Middle Grade and younger, I love humour, adventure, and make believe. I also enjoy stories about children navigating their changing relationships with family and friends. I strongly prefer books with at least 1 human character.
