Frances Goldin agency has eight agents, all accepting queries, including two associate agents, Jade Wong-Baxter and Sulamita Garbuz, who just joined the agency in 2021. Like all new agents, they need authors:
Jade Wong-Baxter previously worked for three years at Massie & McQuilkin Literary as a junior agent and foreign rights associate. A graduate of Vassar College, Jade got her start in publishing at Writers House, W.W. Norton, and Folio Literary.
Jade is looking for adult literary/upmarket fiction and narrative nonfiction. Like everyone else, she’s particularly interested in narratives by and about people of colour and the perspectives of marginalized identities. Her other areas of interest include magical realism, memoir, cultural criticism, and Asian-American history.

Sulamita Garbuz worked at Trident Media for four years before joining Frances Goldin agency. A graduate of Swathmore College, she worked in the white collar crimes division of the US Attorney’s Office and for several labour unions before entering publishing.
Sulamita gravitates primarily toward nonfiction, with an emphasis on books with a social justice bent. Her areas of specializaty include narrative nonfiction, memoir, psychology, science, and journalism.
She is also looking for character-driven literary fiction and is especially excited by novels that use speculative or dreamlike elements to explore current social dynamics, stories of obsession and women misbehaving, and narratives about immigration and 2nd generation experience.
