Agent Spotlight: Tanusri Prasanna of Foundry Literary + Media
About Tanusri: Tanusri was born and raised in India and has strong roots in the sub-continent. She has a law degree from the National Law School of India, an LLM from Harvard Law School, and holds a PhD in jurisprudence and human rights law from Oxford University. She has worked in the World Bank’s legal department in Washington and as a teaching fellow at Columbia Law School. Before joining Foundry, she worked at the Hannigan Salky Getzler (HSG) Agency.
She is Seeking: Tanusri represents children’s books across all ages, ranging from picture books to middle-grade and young adult. She’s particularly drawn to ambitious world-building fantasies, contemporary novels that convey emotional truths about self, familial relationships, identity, and community with nuance and empathy, charming and relatable romances, and voice-driven suspense. In middle-grade, Tanusri is partial to literary voices with vulnerable yet resilient protagonists, mysteries, and humorous stories set in schools or quirky neighborhoods. In picture books, she is looking to represent authors and author/illustrators. She is a big fan of wry humor and twisty endings, but also loves lyrical (though not rhyming!), meaningful, and concept-driven texts. For adults, she is always on the lookout for diverse voices in fiction, and for voice-driven, accessible, narrative nonfiction set against the themes of social justice and human rights.
How to Submit: Send queries to tpsubmissions@foundrymedia.com. With your query letter, include a synopsis, the first three chapters of your manuscript, and a bio.

I’ve listed some of the agents below; if you go to this site, please be aware that several comments were made that Jen Hunt of The Booker Albert Literary Agency is No Longer Available. I’m still considering going with an agent for my next novel. Unfortunately, I’m no where near ready to start looking. Good luck with yours. ~ Connie
