WORD: Rachel Vater latest agent to join Folio Literary Management

Literary agent Rachel Vater has joined Folio Literary Management, bringing the number of agents at one of New York City’s fastest-growing agencies to seven and raising the firm’s profile in the hot young adult (YA) market. Authors will be interested to hear Rachel is taking on new clients.

"The agency is like a dream team of the brightest, most innovative agents I know. I’m so honored to work with each agent there," Rachel told WORD’N’BASS.com, adding that she’s currently looking for authors of YA, children’s books and smart women’s fiction.

"I love middle grade and young adult novels, and I’m especially interested in urban fantasy. But I’m open to a lot of different genres in fiction and I’m also looking for witty women’s nonfiction."

Rachel joined Folio Literary Management after stints at Donald Mass, where she started as an assistant agent in 2003, and most recently at Lowenstein-Yost, where she was a literary agent known for selling up a storm.

Since launching in January 2006, Folio Literary Management has grown from the original three founders - Scott Hoffman, Jeff Kleinman and Paige Wheeler - to include seven literary agents and a support staff. As previously reported, Celeste Fine joined the firm last year via Trident Media Group.

Further information, including submission guidelines and recent sales data, is available at Folio’s website.
