Caitlin White, Agency Assistant

caitlin white, agency assistant, emerald city literary agency
Caitlin is a freelance writer and editor who was previously the Interim Books Editor for Bustle, and she has written about YA books for HelloGigglesBustleElle, and Glamour. Caitlin brought her passion for YA and MG to Emerald City Literary Agency in 2019 as an intern before being promoted to Agency Assistant in October 2020. She currently lives in Ottawa, Ontario, but is from the Boston area.

As the Agency Assistant, Caitlin works on office management and helps with reading queries sent to ECLA agents.

She loves reading whodunnits that harken back to Agatha Christie (think: Maureen Johnson’s Truly Devious series), pretty much anything that makes her feel like summer (her favorite book is Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters), stories about groups of friends, magical realism that feels grounded (like Anna-Marie McLemore’s When the Moon Was Ours), unabashedly feminist POVs, and contemporary witches, like These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling. (If you say it’s like The Craft or Practical Magic, she will read it.)
