Laurel Symonds

Laurel launched as a literary agent with The Bent Agency in September 2018. She began her publishing career in the editorial department of HarperCollins Children’s Books/Katherine Tegen Books in New York City. In the past decade, she has also held positions in the marketing department at a small publishing house, in a library, and as a bookseller at one of the nation’s best independent bookstores. What she loves about agenting is being the author’s number one cheerleader through all these parts of the publication process!
