Page Break with Brian McClellan


Ep 27 - Caitlin Blasdell - Literary Agent

Season 1, Ep. 27

Brian's guest this week is literary agent Caitlin Blasdell. Caitlin began her career editing for Harvard Business School and Harper Collins before making the transition to her current job as a literary agent for Liza Dawson Associates where she has helped nurture and sell such clients as Charles Stross, Rebecca Zanetti, Zen Cho, and numerous others that include Brian himself!

Brian chats with Caitlin about their professional relationship, the ups and downs of the publishing market, an agent’s role where business and creativity meet, and the way their industry has changed over the last decade. Caitlin was also kind enough to answer some of the more standard agent questions, such as what she’s looking for and what kills a query letter. Enjoy Brian's conversation with Caitlin Blasdell!

Find Caitlin's submission guidelines and client list at her agency, Liza Dawson Associates.
