ABOUT AYESHA PANDE LITERARY
Ayesha Pande Literary is a full-service boutique agency with an eclectic, inclusive client list. We bring conviction and passion to everything we do: from developing concepts and ideas to strategizing long-term career goals, selling foreign, film and other subsidiary rights, brainstorming marketing and publicity plans; and advocating for our authors.
We are especially passionate about discovering and nurturing talented new voices, and we work hard to procure and negotiate contracts and guide authors through the bewildering publication process. We work with clients on setting career goals; consult with them on creating an effective online media platform and advocate for their interests with the publishing companies. We believe good writing is everything and bring our extensive editorial experience to bear in editing and polishing clients’ work before submitting it to publishers. We provide every client with personal attention and because of this we limit the number of clients we take on. We pride ourselves on being transparent, communicative and ethical.
Before joining Ayesha Pande Literary, Annie began her career at Folio Literary Management where she had the pleasure of working with debut and seasoned authors alike. As a former journalist, Annie possesses a keen editorial eye which she brings to her approach to agenting, taking an active role in the careers of her clients. Annie represents voice-driven literary fiction and select nonfiction. In particular, she gravitates toward subversive, genre-inflected literary fiction and impactful mission-driven narrative nonfiction that explores and grapples with the complexities of our world. A fierce champion for underrepresented voices, Annie is always on the hunt for gifted storytelling that stretches its genre to new heights.
