Summer Intern Testimonial

DSM Agency is extremely thankful to have had Alicia Ramirez as the 2013 summer intern. We wish her much success wherever her journey takes her.

My internship at DSM Agency taught me that working at a literary agency goes beyond reading submissions. I learned how to sell a book for the best possible terms and establish a great relationship with an author. Doris and Pauline were incredibly supportive and went beyond their way to provide me with resources so that I could make the most out of my experience. They invited me to events for agents, which have made me a well-rounded intern. Thanks to their mentorship, I now have a solid foundation that will help me blossom into a publishing professional in the near future.

Intern Testimonial

DSM Agency is extremely thankful to have had Tqwana Brown as the 2013 spring intern. We wish her much success wherever her journey takes her.

My internship with DSM Agency was a great introduction to the publishing industry. From the first interview to my last day, I felt part of the team whose opinion was truly valued. Doris and Pauline were always helpful, supportive, and encouraging. The opportunities they gave me to learn about the relationship between the agent and the author, as well as reading and evaluating queries and manuscripts are invaluable. I never once felt uncomfortable, especially being such a non-traditional student and intern. They have done so much to make me a better publishing professional. I consider Doris and Pauline not only good bosses and mentors, but friends who I feel comfortable going to for career and life advice. Their help and guidance went beyond what I could do for the agency, and for that I will always be grateful.
