Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Jessica Felleman of Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency

Jessica Felleman is a literary agent with Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency.

Jessica began her publishing career in Los Angeles after receiving her MFA in writing from CalArts. She relocated to New York in 2015, where she spent five years at a mid-sized agency before joining the Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency.

Jessica represents a range of creators, loves fresh stories about magic, and looks for commercial and literary fiction featuring underserved voices, unforgettable places, and complicated families. She is especially looking for fiction that balances on the edge of genre—particularly science fiction and fantasy. Jessica has a soft spot for stories set in Los Angeles and New England, the weird and strange, and characters who make mistakes, even if they can’t fix them.

Jessica specializes in pop culture nonfiction and prescriptive titles that offer realistic advice or new perspectives to help readers better understand themselves and the world, as well as humor, cookbooks, and narrative nonfiction about science, history, and psychology that engages with contemporary conversations.

Jessica is not considering poetry, individual short stories, romance/erotica, thrillers, true crime, memoir, unillustrated graphic novels, or Children’s or Middle Grade books at this time.
