Meet Literary Agent - Carly Watters of P.S. Literary Agency

Let me start off by saying that Carly Watters is a DREAM agent. She is who you want on your side, for sure.

She was a pleasure to talk to and shares some incredible insight into querying and what to look for in a publishing partner.


Senior VP, Senior Literary Agent, and Director of Literary Branding

Carly Watters began her publishing career in London at the Darley Anderson Literary, TV and Film Agency. She has a BA in English Literature from Queen’s University and a MA in Publishing Studies from City University London. Since joining PSLA in 2010 Carly has had great success launching new authors domestically and abroad. Never without a book on hand she reads across categories which is reflected in the genres she represents at PSLA. Representing debuts and bestsellers, Carly is drawn to: emotional, well-paced fiction with a great voice and characters that readers can get invested in, and platform-driven non-fiction. Carly is currently closed to queries.
