Description of the Item:
Win a 30-minute video call with Claire Draper (they | them), agent at the Bent Agency, where you can ask questions about the publishing industry, your career path, and any of your projects.
Claire Draper fell in love with books later than some, when her high school best friend dragged her to the theater to see Twilight. After studying Queer Diversity in Children's Literature at New York University's Gallatin School and pursuing multiple internships, in 2016 she spent a fantastic (if short-lived) two weeks working as a bookseller for the Strand, before joining InkWell Management as a receptionist and agents' assistant. Since early 2019, Claire has been at the Bent Agency growing her list with a collection of very queer books for readers of all ages, including graphic novels, picture books, middle-grade, young adult, and adult romance, nonfiction, and memoir.
