My role is multi-faceted: it encompasses sourcing digital opportunities for Blair clients, identifying digital talent, and representing clients who are active in digital spaces or whose topics, writing and expertise have strong potential to succeed in a digital landscape.
In addition to working as a literary agent for my clients, I will also be working on brand partnerships and digital opportunities for them.
I am primarily looking to represent clients with a strong digital presence, across platforms, who can translate such talents into the literary world and beyond. Additionally, I am looking for trend-focused writing which reflects current cultural and media interests – whether it’s the latest Netflix documentary going viral, a film everyone is talking about, or that podcast you can’t stop listening to.
In books, I’m looking for voice-led, propulsive writing in commercial and upmarket fiction and zeitgeisty non-fiction. While I’m a fan of YA, I’m not the right agent for anything younger, though I’ll be working with the other agents on these titles for any digital opportunities.
My recent favourite reads include Louise O’Neill’s Idol, R. F. Kuang’s Babel, Candice Brathwaite’s I Am Not Your Baby Mother, Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Mexican Gothic, Taylor Jenkin Reid’s Daisy Jones and The Six and Bella Mackie’s How To Kill Your Family.
I am especially interested in anything written by those underrepresented in the publishing industry. You can submit to me at [email protected]
