Stephanie Delman

Stephanie Delman began her career at Greenburger Associates in early 2012. As a junior assistant and then senior assistant/foreign rights liaison, Stephanie worked with president Heide Lange for almost 6 years before transitioning to full-time agenting in January 2018.

Stephanie represents adult fiction, select non-fiction, and a few illustrators whose work is geared toward the adult market. In fiction, she is particularly enthusiastic about literary/upmarket contemporary fiction, genre-bending suspense, and atmospheric, near-historical fiction (past 200 years). While Stephanie does not work with strict genre writers, she is drawn toward literary narratives that contain elements of surrealism, magic, or sci-fi (think STATION ELEVEN by Emily St. John Mandel or HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES by Carmen Maria Machado). She also enjoys interwoven plots, epic/international family sagas, and fictionalized accounts of overlooked periods in history. Stephanie also represents a select range of non-fiction by authors with established, engaging, and unique perspectives, as well as a few comic illustrators. Please see the “Clients” page for further information.

A graduate of Johns Hopkins’ Writing Seminars program, Stephanie considers herself a “hands-on” agent and is eager to work with debut authors who are serious about their craft.
