Join us at our LWC LIVE MONTHLY ONLINE EVENT. The live Zoom events are a friendly chat with a leading literary agent and Jacq Burns.


JULY 30th  at 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Sian Ellis-Martin, Blake Friedmann

Sian is an Associate Agent at Blake Friedmann Literary Agency where she has worked for over five years. As well as assisting two agents with their client lists, she is also building her own list of fiction and non-fiction across genres. Sian is always keen to hear from authors who feel their voice is underrepresented in publishing and it’s important to her to work with authors and books from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Story is key to the books she enjoys; she is always looking for an element of plot to drive her through a novel, wherever it sits on the commercial to accessible literary spectrum. Equally, she’s drawn to non-fiction that reads almost like a story at the same time as it educates and informs.

She is drawn to contemporary novels although she does like to dabble in historical too, especially if the narrative revolves around a real character or event from the past.

Sian is also searching for narrative non-fiction on a variety of topics including, love, relationships, popular culture, politics and history. Her favourite non-fiction books are ones that make complicated ideas more accessible or pull you into a world that you hadn’t thought you’d be interested in. She’d also like to find books on food and cookery.
