It's still literary related, so I'm posting it here. Mostly because I am SO EXCITED I CAN HARDLY STAND IT.
Sadly, no agent yet -- just waiting on my partials and everything else. However, I have job news to share and this is my success story. This morning, I accepted a position in the Literary Scouting division at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates!!Edit:
If you want to know what a scout does? We're the ones who (and this is taken right from SJGA's website) read and evaluate a wide range of fiction from important new literary voices to potential bestsellers as well as nonfiction of every type, from current affairs to memoirs to self-help. We also evaluate children’s and young adult literature. Literary agencies, all the major houses, university presses and independent publishers are covered in our search for books with strong translation potential./Edit
So for those of you who want to get into publishing? Interning is the best way to do it. Publishing is like a giant apprenticeship and the best way in is via the real ground floor. I'm so excited to start, and I begin sometime in June. Don't have my official title yet (I was too excited to ask!) but I cannot wait to start working there.
And I also can't say enough nice things about the staff at InkWell management either. They're fantastic to work with and their Foreign Rights department is incredible (though I may be a bit biased because I worked so closely with Lyndsey, Alexis and Charlie).
This has been quite the week! Finished all my school work and finals (and survived), got a job, got requests from an amazing agent, and now a job with a great agency. SO STOKED!!!
