|We heart literary agents!|
Hope this helps some of you on your querying journey!
Note that I've just listed the agencies here. Some have one agent who reps YA SF/F, some have multiple agents who do. Hopefully with a bit more sleuthing you can find the agent that's the right fit for your project. A great place to start is a list of Agents Looking for SFF Writers compiled by Erica Verillo.

Literary Agencies that Represent
YA Fantasy & Science Fiction
I've tried to screen these to the best of my ability, however, there are some newer agencies on the list. Always, always do your research before submitting!!! Make sure you submit to a reputable agent!
*If agency name is followed by an asterisk, they rep YA, but didn't specify if they'll take speculative YA

NOTE: If you can't get the scroll bar to work, try these work-arounds:
(1) Click on the chart, then use page-up/page-down keyboard commands
(2) Click on the white space toward the bottom of the scrollbar to scroll down.
Dragging the grey bar seems to work to scroll it back up

Got any more agencies to add?
If any of you know of any other agencies that have agents who represent Young Adult fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal/dystopia etc, let me know and I can add them to the list! Also if you notice any errors or misrepresentations, please let me know so I can correct them!
