Bianca Gillam


AGENT

Bianca is currently OPEN for submissions.

I joined Zeno in 2024, driven by my passion for the expanding market for zeitgeist-y, compelling and addictive fiction — books and authors with an electric feel that cause ripples across social media and beyond. I formerly worked in Editorial, acquiring and publishing books across the spectrum of commercial fiction for Aria at Head of Zeus. I have also worked in sales at Simon and Schuster UK.

Alongside agenting, I am an author — my first novel, BAD PUBLICITY, will be published by Bloomsbury UK and Penguin Pamela Dorman in the US in February 2025. I am excited to be expanding Zeno’s commercial offering, and will be representing authors of commercial fiction, with some select non-fiction clients.

When open, I am looking for: Romantasy, Rom-coms with an edge, women’s fiction with a strong hook and deep emotional narrative (think Taylor Jenkins-Reid), atmospheric thrillers with a strong sense of place (think In My Dreams I Hold a Knife by Ashley Winstead). My primary focus is fiction, but I am open to a select number of narrative non-fiction projects, with a focus on stories that have particular relevance for young women (think I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jeannette McCurdy), or are so gripping they read like fiction (think Educated by Tara Westover).
