Jessica Felleman

Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency

My Manuscript Wish List®

Jessica Felleman 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 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, or blends genres in a surprising way. 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 and narrative nonfiction about science, history, and psychology that engages with contemporary conversations.

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

Fun facts about me:

I grew up in a gymnastics family and would love to see more sports families in fiction or nonfiction.
