Anna Gracia was an intern at Bradford Literary, where she read and evaluated manuscripts in the slush pile. She’s going to give us a glimpse into that process and share her insights.

Anna grew up biracial in the Midwest, spending her formative years repeatedly answering the question, “what are you?” Before finding her way as a YA author, she was a CPA, a public school teacher, a tennis coach, and for one glorious summer, a waitress at a pie shop. She now lives on the West Coast, raising three kids and writing stories about girls navigating a world full of double standards. She is currently represented by Kiana Nguyen of the Donald Maass Literary Agency.

Note: Event takes place on Mountain Time. Registered attendees will be sent a Zoom link two days before the meeting. New Mexico members can find the link in the e-lert and do not need to register.
