I have openings for interns! I’m looking to fill positions for Adult Fiction interns focusing in Women’s Fiction, Female-Centric Thrillers, Horror, and general Upmarket and Literary Fiction.

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 have ended up sticking around for a year or more!


To apply for the Adult Intern position, send the information below to:, with subject line “Adult 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 books of fiction you read

If you’ve applied in the past, you’re welcome to apply again. Watch this space and @HeddaFlaherty on Twitter for details!

UPDATE on April 30th: Applications for this internship are now closed. Thank you so much to all who applied, we’ll answer you shortly!

I’m thrilled to announce deals for Hilary McKay’s new novel, to be called THE SKYLARKS’ WAR when Macmillan publishes it in the UK and LOVE TO EVERYONE in the US, where it will be published by Margaret K. McElderry Books/Simon & Schuster BFYR. It really is Hilary at her very best: a complicated family, plenty of wit, and finding hope amidst the tragedy of war. Coming to a bookstore near you in fall 2018!
