The Bright Agency has made another new addition to its ranks - bringing on board Ellie Wharton as publishing agent.
Wharton brings with her a wealth of experience from the other side of publishing, having gained a different perspective on the industry from her background as an international rights manager for Meadowside Books.
She also has an editorial history and writes children's books, meaning she knows a number of Bright's illustrators already.
"Ellie's experience of selling international rights has given her an inherent knowledge of which art styles and texts work on a global level," said Bright MD Vicki Willden-Lebrecht. "This will hugely benefit both us and our clients, as her familiarity with which styles work in which markets will greatly increase co-edition potential."
