Do you want to get published next year? Are you looking for an agent? Fiona Kenshole, with Transatlantic Agency, will share her insights into how to get your book published, how to find an agent, and much more.

Submit the first page of your manuscript (she will consider everything from picture book to adult) and Fiona may select it for an online critique. We invite you to submit your first page and questions in advance by sending them to writers.lead@bainbridgebarn.org . If you’re selected, you will have the option to read your page yourself or have the moderator read it during the event.

Fiona says, "I love the midwifery of being an agent, from getting your debut published to doing your movie deal. I represent a number of best-selling and award-winning PNW authors including Rosanne Parry, the New York Times best-selling author of A Wolf Called Wander. At Transatlantic we like to sell your book to publishers all over the world so I work with co-agents in 28 countries, selling worldwide rights. I specialize in children’s and YA from picture books to older teenage, and also represent a small number of adult nonfiction titles."
