Yasmin Kane

Some people live in houses made of straw, sticks and bricks - I prefer houses made of books...

I live between the pages of books, flitting in and out of stories. My world is built with words. Within these words, there glows the light of my never ceasing excitement at discovering yet more words.

Words are my obsession, bring me your beautiful words and let me champion them on your behalf.

At Kane Literary Agency, I provide a hands-on and nurturing environment, where I give advice and provide guidance. I believe teamwork is best achieved through effective communication and mutual trust, which are the foundations of a successful partnership. This is my winning formula.

It takes huge sacrifice and dedication to write a book that is deemed ready for publication.

About me:

I originally trained as a lawyer, Kane literary agency was established in 2004.
I strive to be at the cusp of change in our continuously evolving industry.
Kane Literary Agency specialises in Fiction, alongside Nonfiction, Young Adult Fiction and Children’s Fiction.
I curated literary events at Midsummer Muswell Festival in 2017 and regularly participate in agent one-to-ones at London Book Fair, Winchester Writers' Festival, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Hampshire Writers’ Society and the Historical Novel Society.

My current wishlist - mind blowing YA Fiction, Literary Fiction from the soul.

I love all encompassing universal themes and huge unforeseeable twists - be they fictional or nonfictional, stories emerge in many shapes and forms. I long to read elusive stories which, once captured on the paper, stay with you long after...
