Three literary agents at kt literary are seeking new authors:

Hannah Fergesen has joined KT Literary as an agent, and like all new agents, she needs authors.
Hannah obtained her degree in Writing for Film and Television in Denver. Then she moved to New York and course-corrected her career toward publishing, a dream of hers since childhood. After stints as an intern for a literary agent, a bookseller at Books of Wonder, and intern at Soho Press, a literary assistant at Trident Media, and a freelance editor, Hannah joined KT Literary in August, 2016, and will give this Colorado agency an East Coast presence. Hannah is a proud TV junkie, with a love for Doctor Who, Harry Potter and anything created by Joss Whedon.
With her background in film and television, Hannah is attracted to stories with strong visuals and sharp dialogue. Specifically, she is seeking edgy speculative fiction and contemporary young adult and middle grade fiction and dark and lyrical speculative adult fiction.
