Taylor Martindale


Taylor Martindale is a literary agent with Full Circle Literary, actively acquiring fiction and non-fiction projects. She began agenting with the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency and is a graduate of The College of William and Mary, where she studied English and Hispanic Studies.

Taylor is looking for young adult fiction, literary middle grade fiction, women’s fiction, and children’s non-fiction projects. She is interested in finding unique and unforgettable voices in contemporary, fantasy, historical and/or multicultural novels. She is looking for books that demand to be read, for the stories that stay with you whether they take place in a realistic or fantastical setting. More than anything, Taylor is looking for character-driven stories that bring the world vividly to life and voices that refuse to be ignored. When considering non-fiction projects, Taylor uses much the same approach, and hopes to find authors with fresh ideas and perspectives, with writing that is accessible, entertaining, and compelling.

When not working, Taylor can be found traveling, cooking, spending time with loved ones, or (surprise!) lost in a good book.

Join our panel of agents for a fast-paced panel on perfecting the elevator pitch. The panel will discuss what makes a great elevator pitch, what not to do, and will maybe even let some of you try yours out in class for feedback.
