Megan Beadle

is the founder of The Beadle Literary Agency. With a publishing background in sales, a degree in publishing from Ryerson University, an undergraduate degree from Queens University, and a passion for stories and editorial, she is uniquely situated within the industry. After working at the Canadian Manda Group for three years selling books for publishers such as the Hachette Book Group, Abrams Books, Sterling Publishing, the Literary Press Group (a conglomerate of Canadian Publishers), Diamond Book Distributors, Independent Publishers Group, and more, she started combining her editorial work and connecting authors with publishers. It quickly became clear that being an agent was not just a passion, but a talent.

Megan will be a part of the agents panel discussion on Friday, June 23 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm and will be offering pitch sessions on Friday, June 23 from 9:30 – 11:30 am.
