Emily Talbot 3

An agent with United Agents (see other agents at this agency).


I am an Associate Agent in the office of Jodie Hodges, and I also represent children's illustrators and authors of picture books, middle grade, teenage and YA. I started working at United Agents in 2013 in the foreign rights department, representing the overseas rights for UA's children's authors and illustrators, before moving over to primary agenting in 2015. Before this I worked in a primary school reading books with children every single day and discovering exactly what they like to read. I love books that touch on the gritty realisms of life such as the writing of Louise O'Neill and Holly Bourne. I'm also on the lookout for middle grade of any kind; everything from authentic and emotive to humorous adventure. Above all I have a passion for great characterisation and am on the hunt for a distinctive, new and underrepresented voice in children’s literature, whatever age group that may find itself in.
