UPDATE: Kathryn is no longer agenting. Do not query her.
Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Kathryn Beaumont of Kneerim & Williams) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Kathryn: Kathryn Beaumont joined Kneerim & Williams in 2011 after more than a decade as a reporter, writer, and editor for publications including People magazine, Technology Review, and the Idaho Mountain Express. Her writing has appeared in the Washingtonpost.com, The BusinessWeek Guide to Best Business Schools (McGraw-Hill) and, most recently, Torn: True Stories of Kids, Career & Modern Motherhood (Coffeetown Press). As a practicing attorney, Kathryn also represents legal clients on a range of general intellectual property matters, including publishing, film, and television, as well as nonprofit organizational concerns. She holds degrees from Princeton University, the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and Boston College Law School. A wine lover and amateur cook, yogini, runner, and pop culture junkie, she lives just outside of Boston with her husband and two small children.
She is seeking: commercial and literary fiction and a range of nonfiction, including memoir, personal growth, women's issues, history, travel, and current events.
