Welcome to Caroline Wakeman Literary Agency

Caroline Wakeman is a top children’s literary agency. With a focus on picture and early chapter books, we aim to bring a wider selection into the children’s publishing market. Our agents and authors have a shared goal to bring immersive and imaginative content to young readers. These stories are a key stepping stone toward independent reading. As an author and a co-founder of an illustration agency herself, Caroline has over 20 years of experience in children’s publishing. With this unique experience she understands the importance of balancing creative freedom with deadlines, and has an eye for matching artwork to stories.  As a boutique literary agency we strive to work with like-minded authors to develop engaging stories for young readers.
