Workshop Leader : Steven Hutson
Steven Hutson is a native of Los Angeles, a child of the sixties, and a storyteller almost from birth: poems, articles, business letters, advertising copy, and lame excuses. (He’s convinced that the Wimpy Kid books are based on his childhood, but he can’t prove it.) But like most writers, he kept a day job; in-between gigs he found gainful employment as a clerk typist, vitamin buyer, waiter, forklift operator, lifeguard, bookkeeper, grocery manager, printer’s apprentice, and meat cutter. He majored in business at Los Angeles City College, and had two books published.
One thing led to another, and Steve established his business in 2005; he edited hundreds of books on every subject from Bible study to yoga to credit repair. He managed a writers’ conference for several years, and mentored hundreds of aspiring authors. Finally, in early 2011, he branched out as a literary agent. He has placed his clients’ works with Dutton, Thomas Nelson, Tyndale, Potomac, David C. Cook, Praeger, Writer’s Digest Books, and others. Several clients have won prestigious awards for their works.
Today he speaks often at writers’ events and writes two blogs. Swimming, gardening, and cooking keep his hands busy in-between. He lives in sunny Southern California with his wife Ruth and son Bradley.
Steve is interested in representing a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books for children and adults. Please no erotica, poetry, short stories, or picture books.
