Rachel Stout, new agent at Dystel & Goderich seeks literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, YA, and magical realism

Rachel Stout joined Dystel and Goderich after graduating with a degree in English from Fordham University. Her interest in publishing began early in her college career as she sought to figure out where exactly she wanted her life to head, career-wise (and to ward off the all too common assumptions that just because she studied English, she inevitably wanted to become a teacher). An internship with LJK Literary Management solidified and strengthened her determination and introduced her to the agenting side of the publishing world. After growing up on the South Jersey shore, Rachel now lives in Brooklyn.

She is seeking: literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and believable and thought-provoking YA as well as magical realism.
