“The office environment was really friendly and welcoming, and they were open to help me focus and gain more experience on the area of publishing I'm interested in. I got to read amazing books and edit manuscripts and books on submission, as well as helping with the agency's social media and rights guide. In addition, they connected me with other people from the industry, and referred me to my current internship.”
