#WritersLife is where I update on all my adventures in the writing/publishing world. For a detailed history, check out the About Me tab at the top of the page. Otherwise, onward to February updates!
New Internship: Literary Agency
The last week of January I applied to be a YA/MG Intern with an undisclosed literary agency and I GOT IT!
As a creative writer, I find it's part of my career to better understand literary agents and how amazing they are in furthering my career. As a YA/MG Intern, I read YA and MG manuscripts each week and send back reports based on elements of fiction and what I believed worked from a reader's perspective. Not only that, but I can say I work with a literary agency, which has been a secret fascination of mine since I read The School Story!
|This novel was my Writing Bible in elementary and junior high school!|
I am beyond excited for this possibility to learn more about the networking part of the publishing world, and I've already read and reported on my first manuscript! Eep!
Sold Out Tickets: Marissa Meyer's Fairest Book Tour
I had planned on seeing Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles, for months but the tickets to her event in Phoenix sold out without checking with me first!
|I wanted to cry when I read this :(|
While I won't be able to see Marissa Meyer tonight, I did receive my copy of Fairest in the mail on Friday and will be reading it ASAP! Fortunately, I don't even have time to be upset with this news because of my new internship :D
I've wanted to be a published author since I was ten, and now I get to play the part of Natalie and Zoe! What dream did you have as a child?
Expect more updates on my novel (if my beta readers ever get back to me!) in the upcoming weeks as well! Love you betas!
