Jaclyn Gilbert

Literary Agent


Jaclyn Gilbert began her career in 2007 as an assistant in online marketing and special sales at Workman Publishing. In 2011, she joined Janklow & Nesbit Associates' foreign rights team, where she helped secure translation rights to works by Jhumpa Lahiri, Tom Wolfe, Laura Hillenbrand, Sarah Manguso, and many others.

Jaclyn left Janklow & Nesbit in 2013 to earn her MFA in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College and work on her debut novel, Late Air, which was released by Little A in 2018. She has taught writing at the Sarah Lawrence Writing Institute, Curious on Hudson in Dobbs Ferry, and Pace University, as well as contributed to the Bread Loaf, Colgate, and Tin House Writers' Conferences. 

In 2018, Jaclyn joined Cullen Stanley International as a literary agent. She is passionate about working with writers to prepare their manuscripts for submission in the U.S. and abroad. She is looking to represent voice-driven, emotionally compelling literary fiction and upmarket nonfiction with an experimental bent.


Jaclyn holds a B.A. in English and French from Yale University and is a graduate of the Columbia Publishing Course. Jaclyn grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and she enjoys long distance running with her Weimaraner, Phin.
