Austin, TX 78703

5/9/2019 From 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

A well-known literary agent at Jankow & Nesbit Associates, Kirby Kim represents both literary and commercial authors. When it comes to literary work, he's alternatively drawn to rich, sweeping stories that try to encompass a time or a place or tightly written, narratively innovative stories that bridge genres. His commercial interests include thriller, horror, speculative and science fiction, young adult, and middle grade. He also represents a range of nonfiction working with leaders and journalists in the areas of science, culture and current affairs. He's also known for representing memoir and pop culture, in particular music and comedy. 

The Event
Kim will discuss the role a literary agent plays in the development of a writer's career, from book one to many subsequent books. He will be in conversation with WLT Executive Director Becka Oliver.
