Julia Silk


Currently focused on high quality crime, thriller, reading group fiction and narrative non-fiction

Julia was an editor for 15 years, most recently with Orion, before becoming an agent in 2016. She has an MA in Comparative Literature from UEA and likes to read stories that expose universal truths in new ways. She welcomes submissions of accessible literary and commercial fiction, crime and thriller from new and established writers.

At the moment she is actively seeking high-quality reading-group fiction; top of her wish list is a sweeping multi-voice, multi-generation novel, preferably with an international feel. She also loves stories featuring unpredictable characters making unexpected choices, fictional and real-life.

As well as narrative non-fiction, Julia also is also interested in platform-driven books in the areas of parenting, health, lifestyle, fashion and beauty from experts and journalists.

Julia does not represent clients in the areas of SF, YA or children’s.
