JUNE 27 at 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Julia Silk, Greyhound Literary

Julia has worked in publishing for over 20 years as an editor, bookseller and, since 2016, now represents a wide range of fiction and non-fiction with Greyhound Literary. She loves to read voice and character driven fiction across the spectrum from commercial to literary, particularly when it opens a door into a previously inaccessible world or experience.

She is also drawn to the combination of the acutely personal and the universal that makes great memoir (Educated, Wild, House of Glass), as well as the blurring of the lines of form and genre in books such as true crime/memoir (The Fact of a Body) and the novel/short stories in A Visit to the Goon Squad and The Wonder Spot.

She is looking for work by writers of all ages and backgrounds. She grew up in London in a noisy Middle Eastern Jewish family, and is particularly keen to represent more stories exploring identity and belonging in whatever form that takes, whether fiction or non-fiction. In non-fiction she is also keen to hear from journalists and experts illuminating new stories and previously unexplored subjects. On the practical side she represents a number of writers in health and wellbeing and is interested in original evidence-based proposals in this area from experts with a strong platform. She loves to work with writers and on books that shape and change readers’ view of the world.
