Jill Corcoran Literary Agency, in an effort to both extend its reach in the children's book market and expand into the adult market, has announced the addition of four new agents.
Timothy Travaglini, the former director of children's acquisitions at Open Road, has joined the company as a literary agent; he previously worked as an editor with publishers including Putnam, Walker & Company, and Henry Holt.
Adah Megged Nuchi, formerly an editor at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers, has joined the company as an editorial agent, along with Jodell Sadler—formerly of Sadler Literary and founder of KidLit College—and the agent Silvia Arienti. Nuchi, Sadler, and Arienti will work on new manuscripts in an editorial capacity, according to Corcoran, who will focus on sales.
Travaglini and Arienti will join Corcoran and Eve Porinchak, who joined the agency in 2015, in handling both children's and adult titles, while Nuchi and Sadler will focus on children's books.
