YA/MG internship opportunity

We're in need of another young adult/middlegrade fiction intern, so if you're a fan of authors such as...

Stephanie Perkins
Rebecca Stead
Patrick Ness
Gayle Forman
Jack Gantos
Rae Carson
Laura Jarrett
Philip Pullman
James Dawson
Maureen Johnson
Margo Lanagan


...and you're interested in learning more about how agents consider submissions, read on. You'd need to be an avid reader of books for young people and, ideally, familiar with both the classics and more recently-published novels.

Interested? Send an email to intern@thebentagency.com. Tell us why you want the internship and something about yourself, or include a resume if you have one (but it's not necessary). Include two lists: the last ten books you read and your ten favorite YA/MG books of all time. 


We ask for a ten-hours-a-week commitment. If you've applied in the past, you're welcome to apply again.

We usually get a great many applicants and the application period will close fairly quickly; watch this space and Twitter (@mollykh) for details.
