Stuart Waterman, Senior Contracts Associate, began his publishing career when he joined one of the country’s oldest literary agencies as an assistant to two senior agents. In his nearly five years there, he was given increasing responsibilities in all aspects of client representation, and discovered an unexpected interest: the contractual side of publishing. He joined TMG to focus exclusively on review and negotiation of publishing agreements. Stuart holds a BA in liberal arts, with concentrations in literature and psychology, from Sarah Lawrence College; a certificate in publishing from the Columbia Publishing Course; an MA in English from City College; and an MFA in creative writing from the New School. He is nearing completion of a paralegal-certification program at Hunter College.
