Alice Fugate is an associate literary agent at Trident Media Group. Originally from Atlanta, GA, she graduated from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, with a B.A. in English Literature and a concentration in Creative Writing, and now lives in New York City. Alice works in the children’s book space: picture books, chapter books, middle grade, young adult, and graphic novels, fiction and narrative nonfiction. She’s drawn to stories with a classic but fresh feel with distinctive, surprising voices from diverse backgrounds. In children’s literature, she’s partial to animal fables, fairy tale retellings, adventure stories, historical fiction, and heartfelt contemporary stories, especially if they explore the importance of place, the natural world, spirituality, and faith. She loves wit and whimsy, stories set in faraway places, and stories that explore the beauty and goodness found in the world without sugarcoating its realities.
