I plan on graduating May 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative/Professional Writing. My goal, first of all, is to get a good job at a publishing house. From there, I hope to end up as a Literary Agent.
Currently, I’m looking for jobs in the Twin Cities. I haven’t applied for any, but I’ve been trying to find someone to answer my questions I have about the publishing industry. So far, no one has responded. I contacted Beaver’s Pond Press Spring of my junior year at college. They told me they would send information about their establishment and told me to look them up upon graduation. I haven’t recieved any information yet.
The following is a list of the publishing houses I am currently interested in:
(I stumbled across this publishing house by accident.)
-Affiliated with the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.)
-Publishes a wide range of books, from hymnals to novels
-Also produces study materials for Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, etc
