Beth Marshea

Beth Marshea is the lead agent and founder of Ladderbird Literary Agency. We are proud to represent diverse voices in a wide variety of genres.

Ladderbird is highly mission driven,  in that we are seeking to elevate unique and underrepresented people and stories.  We truly believe in the incredible power of representation and strive to find tales for everyone to bring to market.

Beth has a deep love of story telling in all its forms,  which is why she represents works from nearly every genre. What unifies them all is truly outstanding writing and subjects that are fresh or bring to light a new aspect of the familiar.

We are proud to work with authors from around the world and hope you meet our next great novelist at The Muse.

What I'm Looking For

Exquisitely crafted literary fiction,  fast-paced, exciting,  adventuresome Sci Fi and Fantasy, Upmarket stories of unusual experiences,  Narrative Nonfiction that screams with originality, Non fiction How To Guides on unusual topics.
Briefly: we like beautiful writing that comes a little out of left field.
