Kelly Bergh is a literary agent with Lucinda Literary.
Kelly represents authors writing practical nonfiction, particularly in the categories of health and wellness, spirituality, and popular science.
In the adult category, she is looking for new perspectives on universal issues. She is particularly drawn to writers who make hot topics seem evergreen and cutting-edge research feel accessible.
In the children’s category, she is particularly drawn to illustrated, interactive books that entertain as much as they educate.
After beginning her career as an editor in academic publishing and briefly serving as a children’s librarian, Kelly joined Lucinda Literary to begin building a list in adult practical nonfiction, specifically in the categories of health and wellness, spirituality, and popular science. She selectively takes on children’s and gift books/decks in the same areas.
A certified yoga teacher, Kelly is drawn to representing authors who seek to educate and empower those curious about what it means to live in alignment with their values. She is looking for PhDs and journalists who want to share their research with a general audience, as well as established thought leaders and influencers seeking a new medium through which to connect with their existing audiences.
Kelly holds a master’s degree in publishing from Drexel University and splits her time between Philadelphia and Seattle.
