WORD: Literary agent heavyweights form Dunow, Carlson & Lerner

Authors looking for representation always get excited when an agent changes firms. Maybe that’s because agents on the move are often looking for new clients. Keeping that in mind, we hear reports that a few agents recently flew the coop. Google the agents for contact information:

Agent Betsy Lerner was named a partner at the Dunow Carlson Literary Agency of New York City, and the firm changed its name to Dunow, Carlson & Lerner, effective February 1. Lerner joins literary dealmakers Henry Dunow and Jennifer Carlson, inching up the firm’s clout in the always-challenging fiction market.

Lerner, who previously served at The Gernert Company, has kept her client base that includes Temple Grandin and the legendary Jim Carroll, among others.

Sara Crowe reportedly joined New York firm Harvey Klinger Inc. as an agent on January 31. According to Publishers Marketplace, she plans on expanding the agency’s stable of young adult and children’s authors, which could be an opportunity for authors in those genres. Crowe came to Harvey Klinger from across Manhattan at Trident Media Group. She still represents certain adult authors.

In Canada, literary agency Seventh Avenue of Vancouver, B.C., was reportedly sold to director/agent Robert Mackwood. Agency founder Perry Goldsmith keeps ownership of the National Speakers Bureau and Contemporary Communications, while agent Sally Harding left to form a solo venture, The Harding Agency. All of Harding’s clients walked with her to the new agency, according to Publishers Marketplace.
