What's the Buzz?
Everything I found on Ms. Knowlton is very complimentary. Her 20+ years of experience, focus on children’s literature, and impressive clientele make her quite the catch for kidlit writers and illustrators. Her clients seem very pleased with her representation and are happy to praise her. She describes herself as being very picky but remains open and invested in submissions.
Interviews:
Interview with Ginger Knowlton of Curtis Brown, Ltd at Mig W.riters (05/2012).
Interview with Ginger Knowlton with Krista Van Dolzer (07/2013)
