Linda Epstein
Emerald City Literary Agency

Linda Epstein is a senior agent at Emerald City Literary Agency, in the east coast office. She represents picture books, middle grade and young adult novels, and select children’s non-fiction. She likes stories for children and young adults that deal with issues of identity, history, sexual politics, feminism, and culture. Some of her other interests include art, food, and the environment. She’s a fan of romcoms and monsters, too. Linda looks for the offbeat, quirky, and left of center, with bonus points given if you keep your sense of humor about it all. She is deeply committed to representing projects that give voice to work by and about all kinds of marginalized people and marginalized stories. Linda has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from The New School and she writes stories for kids and teens.
