Transatlantic Agency
72 Glengowan Road
Toronto, ON M4N 1G4
Canada

Jesse Finkelstein and Trena White of Page Two Strategic Publishing have joined Transatlantic Literary agency as associate agents and like all new agents, they need authors. 

Jesse Finkelstein specializes in upmarket, accessible non-fiction that challenges current conceptions, whether through a “big ideas” book or narrative. "I am drawn to entrepreneurs and people who are innovators in their fields and writing about current affairs, business, culture, politics, technology, religion, and the environment," says Jesse. "I am most interested in authors who have an existing platform."

Attach a (maximum) 20-page writing sample/excerpt as a Microsoft Word document, along with a publishing history and synopsis. Please note if other agents are also considering the project. Due to the volume of submissions received, replies will be sent only for submissions being actively considered.
