1. Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency is looking for interns again! Looks like she's set with young adult/middle grade readers, and is looking for someone with strong knowledge in contemporary adult fiction. These fill up very quickly, so get over to her blog, Bent on Books, to see if you would be a match:

3. Jim McCarthy of Dystel and Goderich tweeted this yesterday:
Okay authors: we're entering the quietest weeks in the publishing year and I'm caught up on slush. Thinking of querying me? Try now!
Bless his heart, he may be in for a flood of queries :) Here are some tweets that followed:
Question: Do you represent MG?
Answer: Not much, but I'm willing to try for the right project!
Question: My MS is so close to being ready! When do things tend to pick back up?
Answer: Two weeks, but frankly, it's not like I'm going anywhere. I'm always open.
Question: What are you currently looking for?
Answer:YA, middle grade, adult....you name it. I'm so open right now. I just want to find something great.
And Mr. McCarthy also tweeted this general statement: To the many who asked, I don't do a ton of middle grade but I'm open to it. Really any fiction or narrative non.
