Representing Adult and Children’s authors

Léonicka is eager to work with people of color, including (but not limited to) trans people, disabled people, religious minorities, and queer folks.

Léonicka represents commercial fiction she can read on a beach vacation, and genre fiction that will keep her reading way past bedtime.

Currently she closed to queries but be sure to check back again in 2025!


After completing the publishing program at Centennial College, Léonicka Valcius interned in the sales department at HarperCollins Canada. The skills she learned landed her a job at Scholastic Book Fairs Canada as a book buyer and marketer. Her career growth then led her to the Online and Digital Sales team at Penguin Random House Canada where she sold ebooks and audiobooks.

As the founder of #DiverseCanLit and the first Chair of the Board of the Festival of Literary Diversity, serving readers and writers of colour is the core of Léonicka’s career.

She is committed to her clients’ careers for the long-haul and continuously expands her skill set to support their needs. To that end, Léonicka Valcius is a JD 2024 Candidate at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law.
