DONOR SPOTLIGHT: Ms. Rebecca Podos at Rees Literary Agency

Three days until the end of the auction! Over the weekend, we'll be posting up a few agent/editor profiles to help writers get to know the amazing publishing professionals who have donated their time to the auction.

If you missed last weekend's Queer YA Scrabble and Author Blogathon, please remember to check out all the blog posts on the Post Master List! The bloggers responsible for the terrific blogathon have generated interviews, reviews, and posted excerpts for all the books participating in the event.


In the second Donor Spotlight, we're focusing on Ms. Rebecca Podos - an agent at Rees Literary Agency! 

Rebecca is actively looking for diverse YA projects and believes that "representing the LGBTQIA experience across all genres of YA fiction is inexpressibly important, and should be our hope, our goal, and our responsibility." 

She is both an author in her own right, as well as a terrific agent representing projects like Rin Chupeco's THE GIRL FROM THE WELL (Sourcebooks), Ryan Bradford's HORROR BUSINESS (Month9Books), Sarah Nicolas DRAGONS ARE PEOPLE TOO (ENTANGLED), THIS MONSTROUS THING (Katherine Tegen Books, Fall 2015), THE SLOW THAW (Harpercollins 2016) and many others. 

She is a graduate of the MFA Writing, Literature and Publishing program at Emerson College, whose debut YA novel, THE MYSTERY OF HOLLOW PLACES is forthcoming from Balzer+Bray. 

Rebecca has donated a 10PG CRITIQUE. This is such a fantastic opportunity to get your opening pages critiqued by an agent before you send them out on submission! Rebecca's perk features in the CLAN DRAGON Auction Box.
