✨Professional Update!✨

It’s PW-official: I’m thrilled to share that I’ve joined the incredible team at Atheneum / @SimonKIDS! 🤗🎉

(exclamation-point-heavy 🧵)

Agent friends! If it’s been awhile since we connected, please reach out! I’d love to chat. 💕

And if we’ve never spoken, let’s change that! (I’m always especially excited to connect with newer/junior agents—I see the good work you’re doing & I want to buy your clients’ books!)

PLEASE read this thread. Every publishing professional I know *needs* to read this thread. 👇🏼 twitter.com/laviecestmoi/s…

Also, if you are a BIPOC creator and you see yourself & your stories in this thread (heck, I know I do): I WANT THEM. I will always want them. And I will fight for them. #MSWL
