Stephanie Winter ON: Millennial Fiction, the Difference Between Voice and Style, and How Agents Work with Editors

"I'm here to answer any questions and help create a strong positioning for the work. Whether that means, figuring out how the creator needs to receive feedback, that they can best process the information or adjusting to their communication style so that they can process the information that's what I'm here to do."  – Stephanie Winter, P.S. Literary Agency
