After fifteen years with the Toronto-based Transatlantic Agency, Don Sedgwick is stepping down as chairman, director, and shareholder in the literary agency.

“I have enjoyed my time at Transatlantic, but most of my days are now taken up as executive director of the new MFA in Creative Nonfiction at the University of King’s College (Halifax). I need to ensure that these MFA students are given independent and unbiased advice about how to get their work published.”

“I understand his reasons,” says David Bennett, president of Transatlantic, “although this was not an easy decision for either of us. I wish him every success with the program at King’s, and I thank him for all his years of service and dedication to the agency.
