JUNE 25  at 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Laetitia Rutherford, Watson, Little

Laetitia grew up in London and took a BA in English from Oxford and MA in 20th Literature from Goldsmiths. Her career in books started as a Marketing Executive for Fiction at HarperCollins. After 3 years, she decided to take a year out to do a Masters degree. She then joined the pioneering small independent agency Toby Eady Associates in 2003, going on to become a literary agent and then director of the agency. In 2013, she joined Watson, Little, attracted by its long-standing reputation, its ability to work with authors across many genres, and its close in-house work in Translation markets, Film, TV, stage and radio.

Laetitia represents a broad and diverse list of authors in Fiction and contemporary Non-Fiction, ranging from multi-media artists, poets and academics writing for the mainstream, to bestselling and award-winning Crime authors, several with series in TV development. Unique voices with the power to bridge and communicate with wide audiences inspire her.

She is open to queries from writers with timely subject matter, propulsive narratives, and irresistible style whether accessible or more playful and ambitious of form. She is looking for fresh, bold, and beautiful voices, preferably contemporary settings, and with the international appeal that comes from a brilliant central idea or little heard cultural standpoint.

At the moment, she is particularly open to novels with surreal or fantastical or fabulist aspects, that throw universal storylines into the challenges of today (and tomorrow)’s complex world. She’d love to experience your characters’ stories unfold in new and underexplored worlds or work or play.

If historical, let your novel speak for today. The strength of your concept might jump out at her first, but she wants to be hooked and excited by the vividness, originality and flair of your prose, its emotional power and capacity to move, provoke and entertain.
