Publishing Industry Changes

For those who knew Timothy Travaglini when he was at Putnam, you will be happy to learn he has joined Open Road Integrated Media as director of children’s acquisitions, reporting to advisor Barbara Marcus. Travaglini will help expand Open Road’s ebook acquisition of backlist children’s titles spanning young adult, middle grade, and picture books, as well as acquiring frontlist titles. He was formerly senior editor at Putnam Children’s.

Jane Friedman is joining web editor at the Virginia Quarterly Review. She starts in June, tasked with expanding the literary journal’s “online and digital content and a larger social media presence.”

Friedman has served as the editorial director of Writer’s Digest, but she now is the assistant professor of e-media at the University of Cincinnati.

Erin Buterbaugh joins MacGregor Literary as a literary agent, focusing on children’s books, YA, lifestyle titles, cookbooks, the arts, and some select fiction.

Talk Tomorrow,



  1. I remember Tim Travaglini from one of my first conferences, years ago. He gave a great workshop and was SO nice 🙂 I’ll never forget he wore a bowtie! It seems to be his “thing.” 🙂
