Moore

About Penny: While completing degrees in Linguistics and Japanese Language & Literature at the University of Georgia, she spent time studying comparative literature at top universities in Japan and South Korea. She then spent time as a middle school TESOL teacher, a period during which she grew to love and understand the children’s book market. In 2013 she found her way to FinePrint Literary as an intern, officially joining the agency in 2014, and has since been actively working to build her list with exceptionally talented clients. Find her on Twitter.
