Weronika Janczuk serves as a literary agent with D4EO Literary Agency (D4EO for Robert Diforio, the agency's founder).

She broke into publishing in 2009, working with a small imprint in Minnesota (Flux/North Star, formerly of Llewellyn Worldwide) for credit in high school, participating in young adult programming at Minneapolis' Loft Literary Center, then reading for a series of agents, including Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency. She built a list of award-winning novelists from 2010-2012, including Hugo-nominated debut Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone (Tor/Macmillan), and the three following novels of the Craft Sequence, and Sekret by Lindsay Smith (Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan).

Weronika departed the realm of publishing in 2012, following her mom's death, and as of August 2018, returned to work with Bob Diforio, re-building a list of fiction and non-fiction projects.

She is looking for both YA and adult fiction, literary and commercial, across most sub-genres, driven by distinct characters and voices, and often responds most deeply to writers who demonstrate a maturity in craft and structure. She'll never pass on what hits the sweet spot: high-concept fiction with a distinct literary edge.

In non-fiction, she is looking for individuals with academic backgrounds or personal and professional experiences that can give rise to projects with real potential to shape the cultural, social, and political mindset on the most urgent questions, along with projects that demonstrate real creativity, innovation, depth of intelligence, and a rigorous commitment to research and advancing discourse.

She is daughter to Polish immigrants, has a self-designed B.A. in the philosophy of the human person from NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and spent the years in between working on educational, cultural, and health programming.
