Literary Agent Kristen Nelson
This month SRW is excited to welcome back well-known literary agent Kristen Nelson.
About Kristin Nelson.
My goal as an agent is simple: I want every client of mine to make a living solely from writing and 90% of my authors do without help from any other source of income. I established Nelson Literary Agency, LLC, in 2002 and over the last decade+ of my career, I’ve represented over forty New York Times bestselling titles and many USA Today bestsellers. Although I’m a very nice Midwesterner, I’ve heard through the grapevine that editors call me “a hard-working bulldog agent that will fight for you.” What a compliment!
When not busy selling books, I’m quite sporty. I attempt to play tennis and golf. I also love playing Bridge (where I’m the youngest person in the club). On weekends my husband Brian and I can be found in the mountains hiking with our 14-year old rat terrier, Chutney.
My client list is eclectic as I’m looking for a good story well told. How you tell that story doesn’t need to fit in a neat little category.
We will be electing next year’s officers during our November business meeting. Currently positions are uncontested, but if you’d like to submit your name for office, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meeting fee $30 members $35 guests and walk-ins. Program runs 10am – 2pm (Doors open 9:15) and includes a single-entree buffet lunch.

Walk-ins accepted on a space available basis only.
