I have openings for YA/MG interns!
I represent YA/MG fiction across the board, but make sure you have a look at my bio to see if our tastes align!
You do not need to have any kind of publishing experience, but you should love to read and be familiar with all sorts of fiction in these categories, particularly with books on the New York Times bestseller lists. The internship is a great way to learn more about an agent’s work and decision-making process. Past interns have been writers, librarians, teachers and educators, MFA students, and passionate readers. You do not need to live in New York—this is a remote internship. We ask for a ten-hours-a-week commitment.
While this internship is unpaid, TBA values our interns’ contributions, and holds monthly educational chats for all of our interns, led by a different agent/on a different topic each time. And in between those events, I answer as many questions about the publishing process that I can. I ask for a six-month commitment, but most of my interns stick around for a lot longer!
To apply for the YA/MG Intern position, send the information below to: HeathersInterns@gmail.com with subject line YA/MG Intern.
– Tell me why you want the internship, and a little about yourself, including relevant experience. Feel free to attach a resume if you feel it would help – though it’s not necessary.
– List your top 10 favorite books of all time
– List the last 10 YA/MG books you’ve read
If you’ve applied in the past, you’re absolutely welcome to apply again. I usually receive quite a few applicants, so the application period could close fairly quickly; watch this space and @HeddaFlaherty on Twitter for details!
