Agent Looking For Clients

kerryKerry D’Agostino started working at Curtis Brown, Ltd. in 2011 as assistant to Tim Knowlton and Holly Frederick in the Film and Television Department. Before Curtis Brown, she received her certificate in publishing from the Columbia Publishing Course, her masters in Art in Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education, and her bachelors from Bowdoin College. In addition to her continued work with the Film Department, Kerry currently assists Peter Ginsberg, handles audio rights for Peter and Katherine Fausset, and is building her own list.

Kerry is interested in a wide range of literary and commercial fiction, as well as narrative nonfiction and memoir. Above all when evaluating manuscripts, she looks for a strong narrative voice and a protagonist with whom she (and others) can connect. She also has a soft spot for anything to do with Maine, Vermont, skiing, and sisters.

Please email query letters to, along with a synopsis and three sample chapters.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. All you needed was the picture.


    • Thomas,

      Cute! I guess you are going to have to come up with a good manuscript and hope she likes it.



      • I have one already. I’ll query her tomorrow.


      • Just sent my query to Kerry. Put in a good word for me 😉


  2. Kathy, do you know if Kerry accepts PBs and Middle Grade? I’ve been looking for a definitive YES and can’t find one on the web. I’d love your comment on this. Laurie


    • Laurie,

      I’ll contact her, ask, and get back to you.
