Aemilia Phillips joined Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency after completing the Columbia University Publishing Course. She graduated from Harvard University with honors, and is putting her English degree to good use in the world of publishing, working with a range of fiction and non-fiction writers.
She is particularly interested in writers who push conventional boundaries in order to address cultural, political, and social justice issues. A dual Mexican/American citizen with family on both sides of the border, and interests in journalism, narrative non-fiction, literary fiction, and poetry she looks for diverse, smart writing with an impactful story to tell.
For non-fiction she’s looking for driven, obsessed writers and topics that challenge the way we think about the world, with a particular interest in Latin American and feminist voices. She loves fiction that at first glance appear to be commercial, but that are also smart cultural critiques that force readers to examine new viewpoints. She’s fascinated by darker, complex fictional characters who upend preconceptions, and stories with just a touch of magic.
