Welcome to our Literary Agent Interview Series! This series originally took place in the Fall of 2020. This is a recap of one of the interviews. These recaps are perfect for aspiring writers and authors who are looking to get published. Learn the inside scoop on what an agent looks for and more!
Alyssa Jennette – Stonesong
Alyssa Jennette joined Stonesong in June 2015 after interning at the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency. She grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration in 2010. As a result, she has unique insight and expertise when it comes to design-heavy or illustrated works. Alyssa is a very editorial agent; she finds a lot of joy in shaping stories alongside the author and delights in building long-term partnerships. In her spare time, she’s the co-founder of a four-year-old book club called #readmorewomen, and a snuggler of cats.
