Quill Shift: A Unique Agency for Children's and Young Adult Fiction

Why Quill Shift?

The Quill Shift Literary Agency represents writers of children’s and young adult fiction. We realize that the publishing industry, especially within this dynamic sector of the industry, is digitally shifting and expanding as more and more people are turning towards self-publishing as the answer to their writing dreams. We also understand that there is a greater need than ever to cultivate savvy writers, to provide them with resources to grow and flourish, and to connect them with readers who will most appreciate their works. By partnering with Quill Shift Literary Agency, because we truly see the agent/author relationship as a collaborative and supportive experience, authors are prepared to capitalize on every opportunity that is unearthed by our shifting industry.
