The Bent Agency: Generalist Intern

The Bent Agency

The Bent Agency is looking for an intern reader for generalist fiction. You do not need to have any kind of publishing experience, but they’re looking for someone who enjoys books by authors such as:

– Erin Morgenstern
– Tana French
– Eleanor Brown
– Jacqueline Sheehan
– Jodi Picoult
– Gillian Flynn
– Lori Roy
– Laurie Notaro
– Celia Rivenbark
– Elin Hilderbrand
– Kristin Hannah
– Jeannette Walls

– Kate Atkinson

You don’t need to like everyone on the list. But basically, you should like at least two of the following genres: humor, memoir, upmarket women’s fiction and literary suspense. And more exciting, this is a remote internship! That’s right, you don’t have to live in New York.

The internship is a great way to learn more about an agent’s work and decision-making process. Past interns have been writers for children, children’s librarians, elementary school teachers, MFA students, and passionate readers. But if you want to apply, you’d better hurry. They get a ton of applicants and the window will close quickly.

As always, good luck!
