Linda Epstein is a senior agent at Emerald City Literary Agency, in their east coast office. She represents picture books, middle grade and young adult novels, and select children’s non-fiction. She likes stories for children and young adults that deal with issues of identity, history, sexual politics, feminism, and culture. Some of her other interests include art, food, and the environment. She likes romcoms and monsters, too. Linda looks for the offbeat, quirky, and left of center, with bonus points given if you keep your sense of humor about it all. She is deeply committed to representing projects that give voice to work by and about all kinds of marginalized people and stories. Linda has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from The New School and writes stories for kids and teens. Her debut middle grade novel will be published by Aladdin/Simon & Schuster in the summer of 2022. Find her on Twitter @LindaEpstein.
