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.

What are we doing this weekend? READING! Art by Joyce Wan. Follow Joyce at @joycewanbooks Joyce writes: Hi everyone! Didn’t mean to dissapear on you. I got my voice back last week but have been struggling a bit to work on meeting some deadlines while my daughter is home (for at least another 4 weeks 😱)! I do have some exciting news for fans of the picture books PUG MEETS PIG and PUG AND PIG TRICK-OR-TREAT that I illustrated by Sue Gallion. There is a third book in the works featuring some new friends! Here is a sneak peak of them on a poster I created to celebrate the new book. Hope you are hanging in there. I am thinking about you all and I plan to post more videos very soon.

Just a friendly reminder to reach out to someone you love! Art by Ellen Stubbings. Follow Ellen at @ellen_stubbings . Ellen writes:Hope everyone is keeping safe and well 💕 I made this more of a reminder to myself but I think it might be handy for other people too! I’m mostly dealing with isolation ok but I find I’ve been missing friends and family so giving someone a call can be a good mood boost! It’s also nice to check in on your pals. I get so wrapped up in work sometimes that I forget but I’m determined to do better 😤 . . #illustration #illustrator #illustrationartists #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrated #illustrationoftheday #illustrate #illustrations #illustrators #illustration_art #illustratorsofinstagram #illustrationart #illustration_daily #illustrationdaily #illustrationaday #illustrationartist #cuteart #instaartist #instaart #instaillustration #instaillustrator #art #artistsoninstagram #artistoninstagram #artist #procreate #digitalart #digitalartist #kidlitart #ellenstubbings
