WORD: Leigh Feldman Joins Writers House Literary Agency
Edited Press Release

Literary agent Leigh Feldman has joined Writers House after 20 years as an agent at Darhansoff, Verrill, Feldman. At Writers House, she will build on the agency's literary fiction and narrative non-fiction lists, as well as continue representing bestselling YA authors such as Sarah Dessen, the NYC-headquartered agency said in a press release.

Writers House was founded by Chairman Al Zuckerman, a former novelist, who continues as Chairman and senior agent, with President and CEO Amy Berkower and COO Simon Lipskar serving as Managing Partners.

"I chose Writers House because of their reputation among agents, authors and publishers as being strong author advocates who have a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of the business, specifically I'm impressed by how well they have grasped the complexities and opportunities of digital's emergence in book publishing," said Ms. Feldman.

"Most importantly, they're big enough to have the kind of leverage needed in today's complicated marketplace, but their approach reflects the kind of personalized service usually associated with boutique agencies."

Feldman has represented several major books during her agenting career including Charles Frazier's "Cold Mountain" and Arthur Golden's "Memoirs of a Geisha."

More information about Writers House is available at their website.
