Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Literary Agent, Literary Fiction Agents, Mystery Agents, Narrative Nonfiction, New Agency Alerts, Thriller Agents, What's New, Young Adult Literary Agents.

Reminder: New literary agents are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list. This spotlight is for agent Samantha Dighton of D4EO Literary.



About Samantha: Samantha Dighton joined D4EO Literary in September 2012. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Hobart and William Smith Colleges with degrees in Writing & Rhetoric and Dance Theory & Performance Studies.  Prior to joining D4EO, she worked at The Sagalyn Agency and as a reader for Curtis Brown. She is based in Washington, D.C.

She is seeking: Sam is looking for character-driven stories with strong voice. She likes characters who are relatable yet flawed, vibrant settings that take on a life of their own, and a story that lasts well beyond the final page, generally falling within the categories below:
