Description

A Novel Nights and Bristol Festival of Literature event: 

Carrie Kania will reveal the role of literary agencies, what agents look for in submissions and UK and US publishing. 

Carrie’s a top literary agent representing fiction, non-fiction and photography for Conville & Walsh  and co-founder of independent bookstore and cocktail bar, The Society Club in Soho. Her clients include Terry O’Neill, Daniel Rachel, Paul McVeigh and Simon Van Booy

Prior to coming to London Carrie worked for 15 years at Harper Collins in New York. As Senior Vice President of Harper Perennial, she watched after countless authors, including classics, new writers and notable names such as Michael Chabon, Barbara Kingsolver and Mary Karr.

She co-founded It Books, an imprint dedicated to pop-culture, fashion, film, music and celebrity. In the imprint’s first 18 months, It Books boasted 13 New York Times bestsellers, including two #1 titles: Shit My Dad Says and Red by the former lead singer of Van Halen, Sammy Hagar.   She now lives and works in London and represents a variety of non-fiction, novelists and photographers.
