New Agency Alert: KT Literary

Reminder: Newer agencies are golden opportunities for new writers because they’re likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time and postage.

Important notes: This agency’s Web site is open, but technically their first day is Feb. 1 – so don’t rush your query. Make it better and send it in a few weeks. Also, this information below is limited because Kate Schafer has not yet responded with all info.
