In case you missed the big news yesterday, I’m delighted to welcome Hannah Fergesen and Hilary Harwell to the KT Literary team! From our press release:
Hannah Fergesen, formerly of Colorado and now based in Brooklyn, will give the agency an East Coast presence. She joins owner and agent Kate Schafer Testerman and agents Sara Megibow and Renee Nyen, representing speculative adult, young adult, and middle grade fiction.
