hsSteven Hutson

Steven Hutson is a literary agent and publishing consultant for WordWise Media Services. He’s a native of Los Angeles, and a storyteller almost from birth: poems, articles, business letters, and advertising copy. But like most writers he kept a day job, waiting for his big break. He majored in business at Los Angeles City College, and had two books published.

One thing led to another; Steve established his editing business in 2005, handling 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’s in demand as a speaker for writers’ events. 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. (But no erotica, horror, poetry, short stories, picture books, or screenplays.)

For the Masters Pro Critique, Steve can handle a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books for adults and children. Spiritual themes are a favorite.

Steve will accept up to 20 submissions. Send the first 20 pages of your manuscript, a one-paragraph synopsis, and an email address in case he needs to contact you. With this, he can evaluate your work both for its literary merit and its market potential. Bring your questions and your tough skin, and Steve can point you in the right direction
