Trinity McFadden

The Bindery

Trinity McFadden joined The Bindery in 2020, after having worked in traditional publishing for more than a decade in editorial and public relations roles for both trade and academic imprints. Her undergraduate education in philosophy, English, and journalism is supplemented by her master’s degree in business administration. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband and daughter. While her interests are broad, Trinity is especially seeking to promote under-represented voices with growing platforms. She values excellent writing combined with fresh ideas, especially around messages of liberation. If a book can help a reader understand themselves or the world in a new or better way, she’s intrigued. Her specialties include compelling practical and narrative nonfiction in categories including social & culture issues, feminism, religion & spirituality, history, biography, reportage, subcultures, and mental health & wellness. She is also interested in select children’s picture books and in select suspense, upmarket, literary, and book club fiction.
