Madeline Ticknor is a literary agent with Writers House. She says: “In 2021, I joined Writers House as an agent associate working in the office of Susan Golomb. I continue to assist her and her clients and am now, under Susan’s expert wing, building my own list. Authors I’ve worked with editorially and administratively at Writers House include Jonathan Franzen, Rachel Kushner, Imbolo Mbue, Noah Hawley, Stephen Markley, Janelle Brown, Tim Murphy, Vauhini Vara, Sanjena Sathian, and many more.
I began my agenting career in 2018 as an intern at Curtis Brown, and soon after began working as an assistant at the Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency. Prior to that, I worked as a copywriter for a creative agency, and as a barista. I received my BA in English with a minor in music from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.”
