Agent, Martin Literary & Media
Clelia Gore is an agent with Martin Literary & Media Management, recently launching its children’s book representation branch. It was when Clelia first read Charlotte’s Web in the first grade that she got hooked by the magic of books, her love of children’s books, specifically, carrying through adulthood where she is delighted to dedicate her life to bringing quality stories to young (and whimsical adult!) readers. Originally from New Jersey and having lived in New York City for several years, Clelia has a bachelor’s degree in English from Boston College, received her J.D. from American University, Washington College of Law and practiced law as a corporate litigator in New York City. In 2013, she received her master’s degree in Publishing and Writing. While she was studying publishing and taking creative writing courses at Emerson, Clelia worked as a managing editorial intern in the children’s book division at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and also honed her editorial skills as an editorial intern at Oxford University Press and taught academic writing and research courses to freshman students at Emerson College. She is interested in young adult and middle grade books.
