She holds a B.A. in English from Kenyon College, as well as a publishing certificate from Columbia University. Kurestin is based in New York City, and spends most of her time in the city’s thriving indie bookstores.

Guest Agent

John Bowers is from Richmond, Virginia and studied English literature at Virginia Commonwealth University. After graduating with a master’s degree in teaching, he spent a few years teaching English and Drama at American International schools in Colombia and Costa Rica. There he engaged in community outreach initiatives, picked up surfing, and after one too many eye-rolls trying to get kids to fall in love with Shakespeare, he packed his bags for Brooklyn. Before joining the Bent Agency, John worked in literary scouting, where he read fiction and non-fiction and recommended titles for foreign publishing and film/TV adaptation. He now helps handle the Bent Agency’s foreign rights and is also building a list of literary fiction and serious non-fiction.
