Transatlantic Agency

Léonicka Is an assistant agent at Transatlantic Agency, working closely with senior literary agents with whom she coagents new clients. After completing the publishing program at Centennial College, Léonicka interned at HarperCollins Canada before working at Scholastic Book Fairs Canada as a book buyer and marketer. She then joined the Online and Digital Sales team at Penguin Random House Canada where she sold ebooks and audio books. As the founder of #DiverseCanLit and the Chair of the Board of the Festival of Literary Diversity, serving readers and writers of colour has been the core of Léonicka’s career. She brings this same mandate to her work at Transatlantic, and is primarily interested in representing writers of colour.

She is currently seeking commercial and genre fiction (especially fantasy, romance, and historical fiction), general nonfiction (especially pop culture, narrative non-fiction, and lifestyle), and YA & children’s books.
