Lauren E. Abramo joined Dystel, Goderich & Bourret in 2005 after getting degrees in English at NYU and Irish Studies at NUI Galway. As VP and Subsidiary Rights Director she maintains a small and focused client list in addition to selling foreign and audio rights for the agency. Her bestselling and award-winning client list includes Rabia Chaudry, Jay Coles, Mason Deaver, Dylan Marron, Anthony Oliveira, Ijeoma Oluo, Erica Ridley, and Samantha Young, among others.

Lauren is seeking fiction and nonfiction from middle grade through adult with an emphasis on authors from communities not well represented in publishing. In fiction she is most interested in accessible literary fiction and both upmarket and commercial suspense, romance, and women’s fiction. She’s also interested in narrative nonfiction and occasional prescriptive nonfiction, primarily in areas that intersect with social justice, including contemporary culture, psychology, popular science, and media.
