Literary Agents view of the Market Place: Lisa Grubka

Lisa Grubka is an agent at Foundry Literary and Media. When talking about what she was looking for in the current market, I was really interested when Lisa said that she had a strong interest in international stories for teens. She also said she liked grounded contemporary with a character she could identify with. Lisa also mentioned that there is a strong push to find MG books for boys.


  1. The link to her agency didn't work for me. She sounds great though. :)

  2. I've been writing MG action-adventure & mystery books primarily for boys 8 - 13 for the past 9 years. I can agree, based on my current publishers, that the market is getting stronger for MG books for boys.
