@UweStenderPhD Hello! What makes you want to work with an author, even if ms isn't right for you?

Replying to @Kauto_on_belly

If the manuscript is not right for me, then I would not want to work with you until you write a manuscript that is right for me. Two exceptions: Rihanna and Simone Missick.

@UweStenderPhD Glad to hear it’s been a good week. :) I’ve written a book with 6 equal POVs which makes for a challenging query letter. In this case, would you prefer a concise query with common goals of all characters or a slightly longer query with each POVs goals?

Replying to @CarlyHussWrites

Oh wow. I personally would prefer a concise query, but admittedly, I would likely not request it either way, because the odds of pulling off a 6 POV distinctly are lowish. But you might of course have done it perfectly, thus query other agents who don't have this reservation.

@UweStenderPhD If a writer lands an agent with a YA book, can they write MG for their next book, or are they career YA at that point?

Replying to @SarahBPalma

Write whatever you want, though it may be smart to first build on your (YA) brand. But not necessarily. Also, make sure your agent or agency reps both, though likely they would.

@UweStenderPhD I want to get a job as an agent once I finish college this December but I don’t live close enough to any literary agencies and finding remote internships are basically impossible. Do you have any advice? #askagent

Replying to @thecliffhanger_

Well, there ARE remote internships available. But, yes, it is a very very tough business to break into. My best advice will sound hollow, but it IS genuine: don't give up. If it is really your dream, there will be a way. That aside, it is tough, even brutal, to make it work.
