Teresa Kietlinski | Literary Agent and Founder

In 2016, Teresa Kietlinski began an exciting new chapter in her career with the launching of BOOKMARK LITERARY an agency specializing in illustrated books for children.

Teresa started her agenting career in 2009 where she immediately began focusing on illustrators and picture book authors. Her list continues to grow in that direction. She brings to the table over twenty years of publishing experience, from all different areas of publishing, including marketing, publicity, public relations, book design and picture book art direction.

As an agent, Teresa has had the pleasure of launching the careers of many creatives as well as growing the careers of established clients. Her expertise lies in illustrated book development. She works closely with authors and illustrators developing manuscripts, book dummies and portfolios with strong visual narratives.

When Teresa is not wrestling office supplies away from her pencil-eating dachshund, she can be found doodling, writing poetry, or coaching girls youth lacrosse and field hockey. She lives by a lake in New Jersey with her husband, daughter and a small fishing boat named Holy Mackerel.
