Ahlback Agency to represent Emmi Itäranta, winner of Teos Fantasy and Sci-fi Contest

Elina Ahlback Literary Agency has just signed a representation agreement with author Emmi Itäranta. The agency is proud to market and sell the foreign rights of Itäranta’s debut novel, Memory of Water (Veden muisti), which won the Teos Fantasy and Sci-fi Literary Contest in July 2011. The novel will be published by Teos in Spring 2012.

Itäranta (b.1976) works mornings at the University of Kent in the UK and spends her afternoons writing. She has written several poems, short stories, articles and essays which have been published both in the UK and in Finland. Her debut novel Memory of Water is a story of growing up, of the power of friendship – and, above all, of undying hope in a wrecked world.

We welcome Emmi Itäranta to our family of authors!
