Lauren Hall is a literary agent, executive producer, and multiple #1 New York Times bestselling writer who comes alongside thinkers, creatives, artists, and content creators to bring big ideas to life.
Over her ten years in publishing, she has worked on 26 New York Times bestselling books collaborating with and representing both new and seasoned talent. Having participated in every step of the publishing process—agenting, editing, designing, promoting, and co-writing—has provided her a deep insight into what makes a book both commercially and culturally successful. With a formal traditional background in publishing as an agent and editor, she now hopes to thoughtfully dismantle obligatory processes to build more thoughtful and holistic paths forward and plug the written and spoken word back into the zeitgeist.
As the former Editorial Director for a medium-sized literary agency, Lauren developed proposals and provided editorial for the agency’s larger clients while working closely with both authors and publishers to develop and pitch powerful and products. She trained and managed a team of writers, editors, and designers to take books from concept to completion and, when time allowed, she ghostwrote for select authors.
Prior to her agenting work, Lauren lived in New York City where she worked with literary institutions including The Village Voice and 826NYC, a literary non-profit founded by author, Dave Eggers.
She has curated events, hosted, and interviewed popular writers and artists like Paul Auster, Malcolm Gladwell, Colum McCann, Zadie Smith, Liz Lambert, Sarah Vowell, and Duran Duran.
Lauren now leads Capital Literary and is Chief Creative Officer of Content Capital, a full-service agency that holistically serves talent through multiple verticals including books, podcasts, television, and film.
Lauren resides in Austin Texas and wears many hats, both literally and figuratively. When not writing books, reading books, or talking about books, she’s ideally on a bike ride, picnic, or exploring some new city and listening to strangers’ stories over a long, unhurried dinner.
