Zoë Plant joined The Bent Agency in 2019 and is building a list that is focused on commercial children’s, YA and adult fiction. She has a particular love of fantasy, science fiction, horror and anything a little bit nerdy, but is also on the look-out for strong contemporary voices and high concept settings. Prior to arriving at the Bent Agency, she spent five years as a literary scout, scouring the UK market for the very best children’s and adult books to recommend to international publishers.
