Ciara Finan

Saturday and Sunday One-to-Ones
Submission Requirements:
please upload a cover letter, short synopsis and two sample chapters
Looking for:  Adult and YA writing - myth re-tellings like The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. She is a huge fantasy and sci-fi fan and would love to find new voices in this space. Whether it’s adult or YA, she is eager to find novels from underrepresented writers in this genre that showcase new cultures and histories and that have me reading into the early hours! Books like The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang or The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty are great examples. She also loves the writing of YA standouts like Leigh Bardugo, Sabaa Tahir and Sarah Rees Brennan.

Ciara joined Curtis Brown in early 2018 after completing a Masters in Literature and Publishing and she now assists top literary agent Jonny Geller. She is also currently accepting adult and YA fiction submissions.

Ciara will be taking over her colleague Isobel Gahan's Saturday and Sunday one-to-one appointments, plus taking a few new appointments.
