Heather is looking for YA/MG interns!

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.comwith 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!

TBA Monthly Wishlist - October 2017

It's time again for the Monthly Wishlist! Here's the project that each TBA agent would love to see in their submission inbox. If you have something that fits with the below, please check out our submission guidelines and send it over. We can't wait to read!

Middle grade fantasy with a strong voice and smart humour like THE VOYAGE TO MAGICAL NORTH by Claire Fayers, and chapter books with a big hook written by marginalized authors – Gemma Cooper

’Tis the season, I’m in in the mood for dark dark fantasy or horror - fiction or graphic novel! – Heather Flaherty

Would love to find a really authentic quirky voice such as in The Rosie Project, as well as looking for a high concept crime novel – Sarah Manning

Nonfiction sports books, whether narratives like Friday Night Lights, histories of great teams or moments or biographies of legendary athletes, coaches or teams. Interested in books on major sports like baseball, football and basketball but also other sports if there is a compelling story – Louise Fury**

**Louise is currently closed to queries, but if you have something that matches her wishlist, please send and add #TBAwishlist to your subject header
