We’re delighted to welcome CBC’s arts and culture journalist/audio producer Rachel Matlow to Transatlantic Agency as a new client! She’s represented by Samantha Haywood.
Rachel Matlow worked at Q/q for eight crazy years as well as Spark, Day 6, The Sunday Edition, The Doc Project and The Current. Her writing has appeared in The Globe and Mail, National Post, CBC.ca and The Believer. She recently won a 2016 Third Coast International Audio Festival award and a 2017 Gabriel Award for her audio documentary ‘Dead Mom Talking’. She is at work on her debut memoir, a true dark comedy (a traumedy!), about her eccentric mother’s cancer journey called “Dead Mom Walking,” which is best described as a cross between Tig Notaro’s dark comedy One Mississippi and Chris Kelly’s devastatingly funny Other People, with a queer dose of Alison Bechdel and a Jewish dollop of Transparent. Proposal materials available shortly. Contact: samantha@
