Read Ms. for a NYC Literary Agency

Okay, no money involved, but this would be a great experience for the right person, reading kids’ books for a New York literary agency…and you don’t even have to live in New York!

From the blog at the Bent Agency’s website:

Friday, August 19, 2011
We're looking for an intern who loves to read books for children, especially young adult and middle grade, and is interested in picture books as well. If you’re a fan of books by MT Anderson, Mary Pearson, Nancy Farmer, Gennifer Choldenko, or Jack Gantos your tastes will likely be a good fit for ours. This internship is remote so you don’t need to live in NYC.

Send us an e-mail to Tell us why you want the internship and something about yourself, or include a resume if you have one (but it's not necessary). Include two lists: the last ten books you read and your ten favorite books of all time. We ask for a ten hour a week commitment at the minimum.

We usually get a great many applicants and the application period will close fairly quickly: watch this space and twitter (@susanhawk) for details.
