Kat Brzozowski

Kat Brzozowski is a senior editor at Feiwel & Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Childrens Publishing Group, where she has worked since 2016 after seven years at St. Martin’s Press. She has edited a wide range of titles, including Anna-Marie McLemore’s When the Moon was Ours and The Mirror Seasonboth longlisted for the National Book Award, and new Fear Street books in R.L. Stine’s best-selling series, which has sold over eighty million copies worldwide. Kat is looking to acquire young adult fiction, especially contemporary, realistic YA with a strong hook; dark, contemporary fiction; and mysteries, suspense and thrillers. When it comes to speculative elements, she looks for projects mostly rooted in the real world. In the picture book and middle grade space, she is drawn to stories she’s never seen before that feel both timeless and timely. Across the board, she’s drawn to authors who bring a new perspective to their readers.

“Kat Brzozowski is well versed about the publishing industry; open to questions and dignifies participants’ participation; respectful of guest speakers’ contributions; prompt with comprehensive feedback; and respectfully honest.”
