Hi, everyone! Happy new year! My name is Clelia Gore and I am a kid lit agent at the Seattle-based agency, Martin Literary Management. One of my professional goals of 2016 is to create a place for talented writers to get to know me better and also a place where I can provide my best advice to writers hoping to make their big break. The publishing industry is a fiercely competitive one, with many gatekeepers, and I truly believe that writers who equip themselves with knowledge about how the publishing industry works are better positioned for success than those who focus solely on writing. I will be posting advice or musings related to writing and publishing and also updating my manuscript wish list, letting you know what kind of manuscripts and clients I am looking for at the moment. The first of these posts are coming soon!
