Agent Alert: Bibi Lewis of the Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency

Literary agent alerts (this one with Bibi Lewis of the Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

Bibi Lewis joined the Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency in 2014 as an associate agent and subsidiary rights manager. In addition to her duties as an agent, she sells foreign and audio rights for agency clients.

As a native New Yorker, she is a fierce patron of the NYPL.
