Curtis Brown is one of the world’s most well established literary agencies. It employs more than 28 people, with offices in New York and Los Angeles.

Kerry D’Agostino is the most recent member of the team and like all new agents, she needs authors. Kerry started working at Curtis Brown in 2011 as assistant to Tim Knowlton and Holly Frederick in the Film and Television Department. Before Curtis Brown, she received her certificate in publishing from the Columbia Publishing Course, her masters in Art in Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education, and her bachelors from Bowdoin College.

In addition to her continued work with the Film Department, Kerry currently assists Peter Ginsberg, handles audio rights for Peter and Katherine Fausset, and is building her own list.

Kerry is interested in a wide range of literary and commercial fiction, as well as narrative nonfiction and memoir. Above all when evaluating manuscripts, she looks for a strong narrative voice and a protagonist with whom she (and others) can connect. She also has a soft spot for anything to do with Maine, Vermont, skiing, and sisters.
