Resumes and Cover Letters

I just sent off my resume and cover letter for a social media internship at Quirk Books!

I really hope I get it!

As many of you know (or may have suspected) I just want to work with books. I didn’t start to love reading until I was 11 years old. Think of all the reading time I missed out on because of that!

And so I want to go into Children’s Publishing because I want to be part of a team who draws a child into reading so that no one else misses out on all the fun!

Wish me luck everyone!

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
