Martin Literary & Media Management Launches Children’s Division

clelia-bio-picMartin Literary & Media Management has opened a new children’s division, helmed by Clelia Gore.

Before working in publishing, Gore practiced law as a corporate litigator in New York City. Since then, she interned at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Oxford University Press. She also writes a blog about the books she loved as a kid during the 1990s, Tween at 28. Here’s more about the kind of books she seeks:

Clelia is very interested in the emerging New Adult genre. Having faced an early life career crisis, she really relates to characters who are confronted with the challenges of entering adulthood. She is also interested in young adult and middle grade books. She is seeking to represent writers whose protagonists have strong voices and whose plots are original. Clelia never wants to let go of her favorite characters, so she particularly loves trilogies and series that can be adapted to the screen. Clelia has a special spot in her heart for picture books. She especially loves ones that are funny or quirky, ones that feature minority and multi-cultural characters, and ones parents won’t mind reading over and over again to their children.
