Publishing Q&A and Editing Giveaway

It’s come to my attention that there has been an issue with the questions. Leave your question on the blog the normal way to make sure I see it.

Ever have a question about getting an internship in publishing, the difference between editing and agenting internships, what to consider before hiring a freelance editor, or what literary assistants do? Now is your chance to ask! I’ll be fielding questions to answer on my blog. I can’t promise I will answer them all but I will answer as many as I can. I have experience as an editing intern, an agency intern, as a freelance editor, and as a literary assistant. Keep in mind I’m not taking my own agenting clients yet, so I’m not the best person to ask about contracts or other similar topics. However, I do have slush experience.

Combined with this Q&A I will be giving away three first chapter edit letters. The giveaway ends Friday at midnight and winners will be announced by Sunday on the blog and Twitter. I will contact the winners. If I get no response in three days I will pick a new winner.

If you plan to enter and ask a question, you can do both via the rafflecopter link below. If you don’t want to enter, feel free to still ask a question in the comments. I’ll post answers when I announce the winners.

You’ll notice in the entry option there is an option to share your favorite inspirational writing quote. I added that as an option for two reasons. 1. I like inspirational quotes. 2. I’d like to share some of my favorites that are submitted.

Enter at the link below.

  1. Hi Katelyn,
    Thanks for doing this! I’m very curious about how one gets to be an agent intern or literary assistant, and how often they are able to do it remotely instead of in a particular city. Are there ever queries or sample pages you’ve loved but the agents did not?
