Pete Ford is a Christian literary agent with Credo Communications, Inc. He feels at home on the couch with a book or behind a keyboard with tracked changes on.
When he was a youngster, Pete begged his mom to teach him to read so that he could read his Bible. Since then, he has continued devouring words. He spent his freshman year of high school writing a dystopian novel and designing the cover—both are as terrible as they sound, but he says it was a necessary learning experience. Soon after, a mentor asked Pete to edit some manuscripts and format them for Amazon, launching Pete on a path toward publishing.
Between high school and college, Pete grew a freelance business, building websites and supporting authors by coordinating the self-publishing process. He can still remember the thrill the first time he bought his first ISBNs and created barcodes for them.
During this time he audited an editing class at Cornerstone University taught by Credo founder and president Tim Beals. In the class, Ford read a biography of the famous editor Max Perkins, which immediately clicked with his passions. “Editing is much more than fixing typos,” says Pete; “it includes shepherding authors to write their best.”
Soon after attending the 2016 Festival of Faith & Writing, he decided to pursue a degree in literature at Calvin University. “I have always been fascinated by how culture shapes the books that are published and vice versa. I figured that learning about the history of publishing would prepare me to help the future of publishing.”
During his time at Calvin, he was the managing editor of Chimes, the student newspaper. He also worked for three years as a Hudson-Townsend Student Fellow at the Calvin Center for Faith & Writing, which hosts the biennial Festival of Faith & Writing, bringing his journey at Calvin full circle.
Pete has also worked as the web services coordinator at Apricot Services. In 2019 he was awarded an Emerging Leader scholarship to PubU for his work at Apricot Services. He has been on the Breathe Christian Writers Conference planning committee since 2016.
After holding an internship at Credo, Pete was hired on as a literary agent and publishing coordinator fresh out of college. “I’m excited to equip authors by weaving together my experience with words and technology in this role,” he says. He focuses on authors who represent thoughtful engagement with and participation in the church.
