The Whiteman Agency was created to bring together the
substantial publishing and business expertise of long-time
executive Doug Whiteman with the creative talents of authors
and illustrators who are looking to better navigate today’s
complex publishing environment. While focused primarily on
children’s writers and illustrators, the agency also serves
projects destined for the adult market on occasion. Doug knows
executives, editors, designers and marketers in virtually
every children’s publishing division and company in New York
and Boston, and he is in a unique position to marry the right
projects with the right homes.
Doug’s many contacts in the legal and financial areas of publishing give him resources unavailable to most agencies, and have given him particular expertise in the area of copyright. He brings years and years of polished experience as an executive, a negotiator and a connector to his work as an agent – a combination that is likely unrivaled in other literary agencies.
