Your Brand as an Author

Often we talk about craft, but many of us often forget to consider that your brand as an author is also a part of your craft. What projects to work on and who to work with are facets of your brand. How do you communicate that brand? In this session, Natascha Morris will talk about how to start identifying elements of your brand, and how to position yourself so that your brand comes through in an exciting and appealing way.


About the Presenter

Natascha Morris joined The Tobias Agency in 2020 after previously working at BookEnds Literary. With a B.A. in English Literary Studies and a M.S. in Publishing, Natascha is a self-described “publishing nerd.” She spent most of her childhood in a leather chair, with her nose in a book, and her passion for books across genres, coupled with her desire to find amazing talent, drove her to make the transition from editorial to literary agent. Natascha’s editorial philosophy stems from the idea that all books should be well-written and entertaining, and that all children should see themselves and their lives in books. Some of her books include ALA award-winning QUEEN OF PHYSICS by Teresa Robeson, GRANDPA GRUMPS by Katrina Moore, JLG selected WE WAIT FOR THE SUN and OONA illustrated by Raissa Figueroa, and THE LIBRARY OF LOST THINGS and A CUBAN GIRL’S GUIDE TO TEA AND TOMORROW by Laura Taylor Namey.
