for writers and readers….

Would you love to work for a Literary Agent? Or do you have a different kind of dream…?

books-drawingYou don’t see job adverts for literary assistants very often so when I saw this one from a major London Literary Agent on twitter today I thought it was worth posting here.

Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film agency are searching for a creative and highly-motivated literary assistant with at least one year’s relevant experience.

The role is ideal for:

“someone embarking on a career in publishing with a long-term desire to work in the industry.”

Responsibilities include (but are not limited to): assisting all agency staff where needed,
reading and reporting on manuscripts,
office administration,
communicating with clients,
answering the telephone, updating the website and agency social media,
processing royalty statements and managing book fair administration.

Dream job?

Apply with your CV and a covering letter that includes your notice period and salary expectations to Giles Milburn at by 2nd February 2018. However, the Agency may close the recruitment process early if they find the right candidate, so don’t delay.

Or perhaps you have a different dream

If you would rather be a client of a Literary Agent than an employee think about coming to WRITE BY THE BEACH, the one day writing conference in Brighton.

All ticket holders have a GUARANTEED opportunity to pitch their story to a top literary agent or commissioning editor in a one-to-one slot. Plus there will be a prize for the best pitch, judged by our sponsor, literary agent David Headley.

Whatever your dream, I hope 2018 is the year you turn it into reality.
