Get Up-Close & Personal with Agent...

Jamie Weiss Chilton
of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency
We've written AND illustrated
our own stories, with 'dummies' ready to sell.
Art rep OR lit agent OR publisher? Get the low-down
on agencies and representation.
This will be a great evening for both writers and illustrators!

Jamie Weiss Chilton represents children's books exclusively: teen novels,
middle grade fiction, graphic novels, picture books, and narrative nonfiction.
Her specific interests include contemporary literary fiction with
intense emotional content (character-driven, not issue-driven plots);
smart thrillers and mysteries; science fiction; surreal stories and
magical realism;and sweet, funny, quirky picture books.

Jamie's career in children's books began in 1998,
with an editorial internship at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers,
followed by positions as an Editorial Assistant and Assistant Editor at
Bantam Delacorte Dell and Knopf & Crown Books for Young Readers,
divisions of Random House Children's Books. After returning to her
hometown of Los Angeles, Jamie pursued her love of children's books
in a new arena, as Conference Manager and Golden Kite Award Director
at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI)
before joining the Andrea Brown Agency in 2008.

Her recent sales include ORCHARDS, a YA novel in verse by Holly Thompson (Delacorte); FALL INTO ME, a debut YA by Jennifer Castle (Harper Collins); BAD FOR YOU, a graphic novel by co-creators Kevin C. Pyle and Scott Cunningham (Holt); JAMMY DANCE, a picture book by Rebecca Janni, to be illustrated by Tracy Dockray (FSG); and Tracey E. Fern's nonfiction picture book BARNUM'S BONES to be illustrated by Boris Kulikov (FSG).
