Zoë Plant

Zoë is a literary agent at The Bent Agency. Having started her career working in international rights as a literary scout, she now represents a list of authors that include New York Times bestsellers and award-winners. Working closely with writers to bring out the best in their books and their careers is her favourite part of being an agent.

She is looking for adult science fiction, fantasy, horror and speculative fiction, as well as middle grade and young adult fiction across all genres. Her tastes lean towards commercial, entertaining and accessible books that also have something to say about the world. She is interested in books that break away from the traditional classics of science fiction and fantasy and do something different with those genres.

She would particularly love to champion more underrepresented voices within that space, so is excited to support emerging Asian women writers. Zoë is available for consultation or submission assessment.
