Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Anna Worrall of The Gernert Company) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

After graduating from NYU with a degree in history, she worked in the marketing department at an academic publisher in her native Philadelphia before moving to Hungary, where she taught conversational English and traveled extensively.
