In 2014 she graduated with a B.A. in English from Greenville College. Kortney manages the agency website and is the editor of the Holloway Literary blog.
She is Seeking: Middle-grade fiction written in the vein of Gordon Korman, young adult thrillers similar to Lois Duncan, and contemporary new adult fiction.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Kaitlyn Johnson of Corvisiero Literary Agency) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Kaitlyn: After receiving a BA in Writing, Publishing, and Literature from Emerson College, Kaitlyn refused to leave the concept of nightly homework behind. Centering her life around everything literary, she started her own freelance editing company, K. Johnson Editorial, as soon as her diploma came in the mail. Holding two years of literary magazine editing experience, Kaitlyn is proud to be on staff for the increasingly popular Muse and the Marketplace Conference held in Boston every April/May through GrubStreet. She currently works as both the Muse Conference Assistant and the Donor Communications Assistant at GrubStreet.
She is Seeking:
- Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult. Lots of fantasy (yes, that very much includes urban!), time travel, select dystopian, romance (erotic elements OK), and historical fiction if it is anything other than Henry VIII.
- Contemporary with a unique concept and good execution. No overplayed tropes/characters. Same goes for upper MG.
- LGBT (as well as characters questioning their sexuality) welcome in all genres accepted above.
- Fairytale retellings but ONLY if it’s from an unexpected POV
How to Submit: Please follow the submission guidelines on the “Submissions” page of Corvisiero Literary Agency and send to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title: “Query: Kaitlyn Johnson, [name of manuscript]”
- Strong query
- Five-page sample
- 1-2 page synopsis
Please do not e-mail unsolicited queries to her personal work e-mail. They will not be accepted. Thank you for your understanding.
