Ever think of writing a book? The publishing process – literary agents, publishers, digital publishing – can be tough to navigate in today’s publishing landscape. Join us to learn what you need to know about agents and how to get published. Literary agent Jeff Kleinman will provide clarification for this often mystifying and frustrating experience.
Jeff Kleinman, Col ’87, is a literary agent, intellectual property attorney, and founding partner of Folio Literary Management, LLC, a New York literary agency which works with all of the major U.S. publishers (and, through subagents, with most international publishers). In addition to earning a B.A. with High Distinction in English from UVa, Jeff is also a graduate of Case Western Reserve University (J.D.) and the University of Chicago (M.A., Italian). As an agent, Jeff feels privileged to have the chance to learn an incredibly variety of new subjects, meet an extraordinary range of people, and feel, at the end of the day, that he’s helped to build something – a wonderful book, perhaps, or an author’s career. His authors include Garth Stein, Eowyn Ivey, Robert Hicks, Charles Shields, Bruce Watson, Neil White, and Philip Gerard.
