Carrie Plitt

Before joining Felicity Bryan Associates as an agent in 2016, Carrie worked for five years at C+W Literary Agency. She represents award-winning authors of non-fiction in categories including science, nature, history and current affairs, and writers of literary and bookclub fiction. She was named a Bookseller Rising Star in 2018, and is particularly looking for debut authors and writers from underrepresented backgrounds.

I am actively building a list of authors writing non-fiction and fiction, with a focus on debuts. I love well-written non-fiction by authors (often experts) who are passionate about their chosen topic, and I have a particular interest in books about the issues facing our society today, narrative non-fiction, popular science, big ideas, nature writing, history, travel, feminism and art. In fiction, the books I represent range from the very literary to those you might read in a book club. Besides excellent writing, I am often drawn novels that have unique and diverse voices, are portraits of complex characters, examine relationships or capture the zeitgeist. I also host a monthly books podcast and radio show called Literary Friction, which has featured authors including Sally Rooney, Olivia Laing, Gary Younge and Karl Ove Knausgaard.
