I am Vere Bank and am a literary agent at S&B. I interned at the agency during my BA in English Language and Culture, which made me realise I wanted to go into publishing. After my MA in Publishing at the University of Amsterdam, I worked at the Dutch publishing house Ambo | Anthos and at a consultancy that focusses on sustainability and social impact.

I returned to the agency to specialize in children’s and YA literature, alongside Lester Hekking. While I love the enthusiastic and passionate children’s publishing world, my focus has expanded to include authors and books across all genres and age ranges that pique my interest, from colorful picture books and YA fantasy to narrative nonfiction and literary fiction.
