As of Summer 2017, I have worked as a Literary Agent’s Intern for Carrie Pestritto at Prospect Agency and the Laura Dail Literary Agency reading the Slush Pile, compiling Reader Reports, and doing other tasks.

Three years of experience working with the Internet Shakespeare Editions as a research assistant, textual editor, and editorial assistant.
