Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Stephanie Hansen of Metamorphosis Literary

Stephanie Hansen is a literary agent and owner of Metamorphosis Literary.

She gets particularly excited about:

  • Thrillers (YA & Adult)
  • YA contemporary with unexpected antagonists
  • Prose that flows as smoothly as poetry
  • Unforgettable plot twists
  • Well-rounded characters
  • Nonfiction with heart

Stephanie represents authors with their debut novels and New York Times-bestsellers and has brokered deals with small presses, mid-size publishers, every major publishing house, foreign publishers, audio producers, gaming app companies, reading app companies, and film producers. She holds a master’s degree with a Creative Writing Specialization. She represents everything fiction from children’s to adult books.

She’s also seeking nonfiction projects with heart. Previously editorial for Mind’s Eye Literary Magazine and consulting with Hollywood book & film agent Michele Wallerstein, she joined Metamorphosis July 2016. Originally looking to help Midwest authors in “flyover states” to garner the attention of major publishing houses, she found camaraderie with multiple agents and editors. Covid has her missing coffees and lunches with publishers & major house editors and trips to NYC. Stephanie is unilaterally deaf with 90 dB tinnitus and hearing loss as well as nerve damage on the other side. She’s dedicated to elevating voices that often go unheard.
