Jess Regel is a literary agent at Foundry Literary and Media. She represents all genres of young adult and middle grade books, as well as a select list of adult general fiction, women’s fiction, and adult nonfiction. She works closely with her authors to develop their ideas for submission and collaborates with them throughout the stages of publication. She is passionate about discovering projects that are compulsive, contagious, and creative. She’s particularly interested in books that are “conversation staters” and novels that bridge the literary-commercial divide, combining a high-concept plot with beautiful writing.
Originally from Iowa, she has a BA from Hunter College. She was working at her local library when she was offered a job at the Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency representing subsidiary rights and building her list of authors, including: Lesley Livingston’s Wondrous Strange (HarperTeen), Emily Danforth’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post (Balzer and Bray), J.C.
