Sarah Khalil

Sarah Khalil is a literary agent and editorial associate to Katherine Flynn. She is seeking serious narrative nonfiction with a lens toward social, economic and environmental justice; anti-imperialist thought; pop/cultural criticism and histories; cross-cultural narratives; and writing from Caribbean, MENA, Muslim and LGBTQIA+ creators; all deeply explored by experts—academics, journalists, and those with lived experiences and something important to say about them. Big ideas, radical thought, and propulsive writing are the cornerstones of her taste. She is also seeking select fiction in the same space.

Sarah joined the agency in 2018 while pursuing her master’s degree in Publishing & Writing at Emerson College. Prior to that, she worked for several years in trade publishing and legal environments in Boston and Beirut, Lebanon, where she graduated with High Distinction from the American University of Beirut with a B.A. in English Literature and a minor in History. In Boston, she has worked at Beacon Press and the IP law firm Sennott, Williams & Rogers.
