Natalie Kimber started her career in publishing as an assistant to Muriel Nellis at Literary and Creative Artists Inc., and later worked under Dr. Carole Sargent at Georgetown University’s Booklab, where she developed academic and trade book proposals, fiction titles, and edited books for New Academia Publishing. She graduated from Georgetown in 2010 with a BA in Liberal Studies with a focus in Theology and Latin, and is a Caux Scholar. She subsequently founded the Sun Rae Agency, with a view to represent authors with provocative, inspiring books that challenge and change the literary landscape.
Nat joined The Rights Factory in 2014 as the agency’s first New York City based agent. She is inspired by bringing experimental, risky, and thoughtful new literature into the world of traditional publishing. She appreciates authors who have a vision incorporated into their writing, from exploring history untold to re-telling timeless tales with a twist, Nat looks for writers who unveil meaningful new ways to see the world and ourselves in it. Her passion is helping authors share their vision and talent with a grateful audience, and guiding the process that manifests a vision into book form is her raison d’etre.

In 2017 Natalie started the Weehawken Writers and Artists Studio–a space which brings creatives together to learn, collaborate, and share works of creative expression through workshops, salons, readings, and other events featuring publishing industry professionals, authors and scholars. The Weehawken Writers and Artists Studio is founded in memory of Judith Wadia (1937-2011), a multidisciplinary artist and community activist famous for her public art works, paintings, and mosaics. Through events and workshops, the WWAS seeks to enhance and expand community outreach and help individual artists and writers reach their goals.
