Katherine Latshaw

I joined Folio in 2013 after working as an agent at The Literary Group International with Frank Weimann. Prior to that, I worked at packager and literary agency Stonesong, where I participated in every facet of book production, from sales to photo shoots to edits and design. That unique perspective has allowed me to weigh in with authority on behalf of clients during every step of the publishing process. I love working one on one with authors. For nonfiction, I will often brainstorm with clients who have the requisite knowledge and platform but aren’t sure how to harness that into a saleable concept. I will write, re-write, and edit behind a client to present the best possible pitch to editors. For fiction, my aim is the same, and I will provide whatever is necessary to achieve that result, from general editorial suggestions to line edits. My authors range widely from celebrities like Burt Reynolds to ice cream sandwich empire Coolhaus.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR: Commercial nonfiction; cookbooks, lifestyle, memoir, craft; pop culture; health & diet; blogs-to-books; select fiction

WHAT I'M NOT LOOKING FOR: YA, poetry, screenplays, science fiction, romance, history

CONCLUSION In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and baking, tweaking recipes to suit my temperamental oven. A lover of languages, I'm currently learning Italian. I live in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
