Profile Summary

Sarah Chalfant is a senior agent and Director at the London Office of the Wylie Agency.  She previously ran the New York office for ten years and has been named by Andrew Wylie as one of his successors (alongside Scott Moyers, the current Director in the New York Office). The Wylie agency specialises in literary fiction and represents some of the biggest names in 20th century literature (Saul Bellow, Salman Rushdie, Philip Roth, Chinua Achebe). 

Unfortunately, it is difficult to give you more information as the Wylie agency doesn’t publish client lists for individual agents, or even the names of any of the agents currently working for the company.  Sarah has a non-existent online profile and has not responded to our requests for information about her literary tastes and preferences.

Given her seniority within the agency, our researchers think that Sarah’s list is probably largely complete.  The agency has a roll call of six hundred plus clients and do not accept unsolicited manuscripts.  For these reasons we do not recommend submitting your work to Sarah.  However, if you are reading this information and believe you can add additional details that would help new authors connect with the Wylie agency, then please get in touch.
