In the last couple of weeks, I’ve heard about several agents and editors moving from one place to another, getting promoted, etc. Here’s a brief rundown of the agent moves I’ve heard about. If I tried to do the editor moves as well, I’d never finish this post.
Emmanuelle Alspaugh, formerly with Wendy Sherman Associates, has moved to Judith Ehrlich Literary Management.
Sheila Crowley left AP Watt to join Curtis Brown UK.
Anne McDermid & Associates in Canada will use British agency Rogers, Coleridge & White to represent their authors’ rights in the British and translation markets.
Mollie Glick has left the Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency to join Foundry Literary + Media.
Mary Cummings, former McKnight Award in Children’s Literature administrator and organizer of the Festival of Children’s Literature at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, will represent children’s books in association with Betsy Amster Literary Enterprises.
Melissa Jeglinski, formerly senior editor of Harlequin’s Silhouette Desire line, has joined The Knight Agency as associate agent/submissions coordinator.
Michelle Andelman has left Andrea Brown Literary Agency to join Franklin & Siegal as a children’s book scout.
Will Francis, formerly of Greene & Heaton, will join Janklow & Nesbit UK September 22.
Kathleen Spinelli, co-founder of agency and packager Brands-To-Books, has been hired as publisher of custom packaging at Quarto’s art instruction and activity book subsidiary Walter Foster Publishing.
Trena Keating, editor-in-chief of Dutton, has been hired by Endeavor as an agent in the New York Office.
