At the Fischer Harbage Agency, Christopher Hermelin has been promoted to associate agent, and like any new agent, he needs clients.  Christopher has  an MFA in Creative Writing from the New School. He earned his BA in Creative Writing at UC Santa Cruz. His writing has appeared in the Awl and the Believer, a couple times in small literary journals, and once on the side of a Starbucks cup. Sometimes you can find him typing stories for strangers on The High Line in Manhattan. He currently lives in Brooklyn, tweets here, and has a website here.

He doesn’t say what he’s interested in as an agent and didn’t respond when I emailed and asked. So your guess is as good as mine. ~ Brian
