When Essie White Literary Agent worked with special needs children, struggling with language, she discovered the beauty of words, and the rhythm of a well-composed story, engaged them. She went on to teach traditional elementary students and found reading was best achieved when a good book was the focus, not the specific skillset.
That’s when Essie White Literary Agent’s real journey with books began. Using quality children’s literature as the foundation, she created curricula for local and national homeschool groups, as well as independent preschool organizations. For each topic, each subject, each thematic unit, she used a book as the starting point. When teaching, she read a book to begin each lesson. And when writing curriculum, she utilized a book as the launching pad for each learning objective.
A few years later, and with Essie White Literary Agent’s youngest daughter as the inaugural student, Essie used this combination of skills and passions, to start her own early childhood development program. Still in operation today, after almost two decades, the school serves over 100 students daily in the Seattle, Washington area of the United States.
When Essie White Literary Agent relocated to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and entrenched herself into the local children’s book community, she started receiving inquiries from local authors, asking about the path to publication. A lot of research later, as well as a lot of work, Essie decided to open her small agency with the hope of ensuring capable artists and authors, could eventually get their work seen by editors and publishers. Storm Literary Agency was subsequently launched in 2014.
