Kayla Cichello



Kayla Cichello is an agent with Upstart Crow Literary open to picture books through YA and illustrators. Her clients include New York Times Bestselling illustrator Kirbi Fagan, illustrator of A HORSE NAMED SKY (Greenwillow/HarperCollins) and Ana Ot, author of the upcoming THE HEAR NEVER FORGETS (Atheneum/S&S). She’s searching for voices that can make her laugh, and keep her turning the page, but above all else, voices that feel authentic and honest. She is most interested in representing middle grade and YA authors and author/illustrators. She is not the right agent for Sci-fi, high fantasy, or nonfiction picture book texts. You can find more about Kayla’s taste at www.upstartcrowliterary.com.
