When researching agents and publishers, I came across a new genre that I hadn't heard of before. It's called New Adult. I've seen several agents' guidelines saying they represent New Adult so that got me curious about what it was. After doing a little snooping around, I found out that New Adult is a relatively new genre or category of fiction where the characters and escpecially the protagonist is a 'new adult' or someone who has passed from the YA category, meaning they're over 18, out of high school. This genre is a bridge between YA and adult fiction. According to several articles I found about the topic, it's because publishers and agents have noticed that readers who read YA aren't always teens, but are in fact, older adults. So, New Adult was created as a bridge between YA and adult fiction, appealing to YA readers and the adults who read YA. Cool, isn't it?
