Beth Phelan is a literary agent for the Bent Agency, living and working in Brooklyn. After graduating from New York University, she found her way to the Waxman Leavell Literary Agency (formerly the Scott Waxman Literary Agency) and then spent some time at Howard Morhaim Literary before landing at TBA in 2013. She is the creator of #DVpit, a Twitter pitch event for marginalized and underrepresented voices, which launched in April 2016.

Most of her time is spent reading, editing, cuddling with her two dogs, and trying new recipes that end in either disaster or total bliss (it's pretty 50/50). These experiments can be seen on #EATTHEBOOK on Instagram, where she pairs new releases alongside food that looks like the book’s cover.
