Louise Fury is a literary agent, marketing advocate and general lover of books. She works at the L. Perkins Agency and is always on the lookout for fun pop culture books. She organizes massive book groups for MG and YA Readers where kids can meet, greet and eat with talented authors. The rest of the time she networks while navigating the slush pile.
And this is where you (might) come in.
Louise is looking for an remote intern to help her with said slush pile. Here are the requirements:
You must love to read YA and/Romance, be trustworthy (with references), eloquent enough to write a reader report and have good taste.
You don’t need to have publishing experience (you will by the time you are done), but you must love to read books and it should show in your manuscript evaluations. There will be lots of reading and feedback required.
If you would like to be considered, please e-mail her at Louise@lperkinsagency.com. Only submissions with INTERN in the subject line will be considered.
Please include the following info in your email:
Reason why you want to intern at an/our agency
5 books on your keeper shelf
The last 2 books you read
Some background information/resume.
Time available per week
A couple of us Restless Writers have had dealings with Louise and can attest that not only is she a fantastic agent, but also a very funny and smart lady.
