Representing Adult, Children, and YA authors


Alexandra D’Amico has worked in publishing since 2019. Alex completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto with a specialist in English and a minor in History, after which she attended Humber College’s Creative Book Publishing program. Alex worked as Rights and Contracts Coordinator for Beverley Slopen before coming to the Transatlantic Agency as Literary Assistant for Carolyn Forde, and Marilyn Biderman. Alex has also been the Executive Assistant for PACLA, the Professional Association of Canadian Literary Agents, since 2022. In 2023, Alex became Associate Literary Agent for Transatlantic and is now beginning to build her list. She is based in Toronto.


Alex is currently open to submissions by referral only. Alex is on the lookout for commercial and genre fiction, including Horror, Fantasy, RomCom/Romance, Historical and Speculative fiction for both an adult and young adult audiences. In nonfiction, Alex is looking for pop culture and lifestyle projects, prescriptive and narrative non-fiction that leans into her personal interests in spirituality and the occult, and expert-led history. She will also love to see poetry in the vein of Lang Leav and SHE WHO DESTROYS THE LIGHT by Shahida Arabi. Alex is actively seeking titles with diverse and queer inclusive representation, especially by authors who are a part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Submissions by email only, please, including a short biography, synopsis, and 20-page sample in Word or PDF. With regret, replies will be sent only for submissions being actively considered.
