Kristy Hunter is a literary agent with The Knight Agency.

In addition to taking pitches at the 2018 event, she is also teaching a class on how to get a literary agent (and write a great query letter).

She is seeking: Kristy is currently accepting submissions from a wide variety of genres, including women’s fiction, mystery, historical romance, romance, young adult, and middle grade. Having spent significant time in the south and New York City, she particularly likes books set in these regions. She also enjoys books that feature horses, boarding schools, sisters, and sororities—to name just a few.

With a degree in Women & Gender Studies and English Literature from Vanderbilt University, Kristy moved to New York City immediately after graduation to try her hand at publishing. She completed the Columbia Publishing Course and worked in the city for several years—first at Grove/Atlantic and then at Random House Children’s Books—before deciding it was time to make the move back down south. She now takes advantage of her new surroundings by being outside as much as possible with her French bulldog, Gummi. Twitter: @KristySHunter.

    Looking forward in meeting you in Georgia. I’m writing a inspirational teenage series based on friendship, love, communication with parents, honesty, humility, triumph, quirkiness, adjusting to others, physical and mental change and just growing up in life. It’s a fun series centered around four girls growing up. Written to let kids develop self-esteem and they aren’t alone with their feels as they face this world. With high moral standards and positive thinking anything is possible….


  2. Hi Kristy- I’m Kristy too! You’ve been on my query short list for some time. Do you prefer I pitch you before the workshop to see if my work is a fit (it appears to be per your likes), or wait until I see you?

    My current Thriller (set in Savannah) went to #2 on Wattpad in its unedited stage. Betas highly encourage me to take it to market (these are strangers, not friends). How can I secure an appointment with you next month? Thank you in advance. – Kris
