SAN FRANCISCO - Nov. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- November 5, 2013--Foreword Literary, Inc. is pleased to announce that effective immediately Emily S. Keyes will be joining the agency as an agent based out of New York City. Keyes was an agent at the L. Perkins Agency prior to the move, and before that worked in the contracts department of Simon & Schuster, Inc. Most of her L. Perkins clients, including Amy Zhang and Katie M. Stout, will be moving with her to Foreword.

"I am so excited to be working with Foreword," Keyes said. "They're a very innovative group, dedicated to using every tool at their disposal to help their authors succeed. I'm sure I will learn a ton from them all."

Keyes spent two years as foreign rights and contracts manager at L. Perkins Agency following her five years at Simon & Schuster. She is also a graduate of New York University's Publishing Institute.

Laurie McLean, one of the three founding partners at Foreword, echoed the entire team’s enthusiasm about Emily joining the agency. “First of all, she’s a perfect personality fit for our dynamic, outside-the-covers thinking group. She’s as animated about blending the promise of digital publishing with the strengths of traditional publishing as we are. Emily also gives the agency the base in Manhattan that we were looking for. And finally, she’s got the contractual and foreign rights experience that rounds out our agent skill set. We’re thrilled to have Emily at Foreword.”
