Whitley Abell is a Literary Agent with Inklings Literary Agency. With degrees in English Literature and Secondary Education, she can tell you everything there is to know about feminist literary theory and the Common Core Standards. She completed successful internships with Carol Mann Agency, P.S. Literary Agency, and Inklings Literary Agency, the last of which she later joined as an assistant, and is now building her own list as an agent. When she’s not agenting or daylighting as a content manager, she can typically be found sipping tea, binging cult classic shows, and slipping down rabbit holes of the literary and fandom varieties.
What is Whitley looking for?
Whitley is currently building her client list and is actively seeking completed young adult, middle grade, and select commercial fiction manuscripts (namely women’s fiction, mystery/suspense/thrillers, and fantasy). Strong female voices are near and dear to her heart, and she is particularly drawn to fresh retellings, diverse voices, dark twists, and distance parts of the world she’ll likely never see.
