About

clelia headshotHello! My name is Clelia Gore and I am a kid lit agent at the Seattle-based agency, Martin Literary Management. I lived a former life as a NYC attorney, but was far too whimsical for it! I now dedicate my professional life to helping authors of books for children and young adults introduce their diverse voices and creations to the world. I like to read novels three at a time–one adult, one young adult, one middle grade, and then move on to a new triplet. I hope this blog will be helpful to writers trying to navigate the crazy world of book publishing. It’s tough out there!

To learn more about Martin Literary Management and my submission requirements, please visit our agency website.
