Eleanor Birne, PEW Literary Agency

PEW Literary is a new literary agency founded by Patrick Walsh, an experienced agent who has helped a roll call of best-selling and award-winning authors to launch their writing lives.

After co-founding the hugely successful Conville & Walsh literary agency in 2000, Patrick launched PEW Literary with Margaret Halton, the distinguished agent and translation rights’ professional, and John Ash, a dynamic young agent who has built an exciting list. In a further expansion, PEW Literary was joined by two highly experienced associate literary agents, Doug Young and Eleanor Birne, who each previously had senior roles at leading London publishers, and by Rebecca Sandell, who has been assisting the company in its growth.

Eleanor is actively building a list of new writers at PEW Literary. She is looking for writers from all backgrounds and regions who have a unique story to tell — whether in fiction or non-fiction. Before becoming an agent, Eleanor was Publishing Director at John Murray where she published across literary fiction and non-fiction. Prior to that, she was Editorial Director at Duckworth Publishers. She started her publishing career in the academic division at Macmillan Press and while at university she worked as a bookseller.
