Justin Wells - Literary Agent Apprentice
Justin is currently OPEN to queries.
Justin started his journey six years ago when he started his blog which grew far beyond what he had originally thought it ever would. If you had asked him then, he would have never imagined just how much his journey would impact his future. Being a literary agent is something that Justin has fallen in love with, and is eager to continue for years to come.
Justin is going into his Senior year of college, and will be graduating with a B.S. in Mass Communications with a focus in Public Relations. He loves being able to utilize his skills in public relations to assist the agency, and his own clients through his work as a literary agent.
Justin loves every aspect of the agent lifestyle. He loves learning new things everyday, and being able to grow as an agent. Be it searching for that next amazing manuscript and client, helping current clients, or doing regular tasks throughout the agency. He loves all of it, and looks forward waking up everyday and wondering what new adventure could be awaiting him in his query box.
When it comes to reading, he is very open. His main focus is young adult, middle grade, and new adult, though he has been known to branch out and explore other books that catch his eye.
Favorite Authors: Markus Zusak, John Green, J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkein, Beth Revis, Susan Dennard, Gary Paulsen, Lauren Oliver Sarah Dessen
These are just a handful of his favorite authors! Most of which are YA authors. There are many more that he loves, but it would take forever for him to go through them all.
Outside of both work and college, Justin spends most of his free time reading. It is one of those things he can never escape. He gets to have a lot of fun reading for work, and he can still have a lot of fun reading outside of work too. He is always looking for new book recommendations, so if you ever run into him on social media feel free to share some of your favorite books with him!
