Welcome to the KT Literary Family!

March 11th, 2013 • Kate

Maureen Johnson & Renee NyenSome exciting news to share today. After five years on my own here in the offices of KT Literary, with thanks to some amazing interns and consultants, I am pleased to announce that Renee Nyen has officially joined the team. Renee is a brilliant editor who worked for years at Random House’s local offices, as well as being a huge fan of YA and a blogger with the YAketyYAks. Renee’s already been looking at queries with me, and has had the pleasure of looking at some client manuscripts as well, and I think you’ll all be very pleased with her editorial eye!

This afternoon, in a special About My Query post, Renee will post her thoughts on a submitted query, and I hope you’ll roll out the welcome mat.

I, for one, am truly thrilled at the expansion of services that bringing Renee on board will provide for my clients, and for prospective clients as well. If you’d like to follow her on Twitter as well, she’s @Renee_Nyen.
