She’s represented by Carlie Webber of CK Webber Associates, she taught high school English and fiction writing workshops at her library, and she’s completed internships with both a literary agency and a publishing house. She was an associate editor with Month9Books before moving to Entangled Publishing as senior editor, working across the YA, NA, and adult imprints.

Her list includes adult and NA bestsellers No Kissing Allowed by Melissa West, The Bone Church by Victoria Dougherty, Lady Julia’s Secret and The Importance of Being Scandalous, upcoming works from Golden Heart finalist Kimberly Bell, as well as YAs Dragons are People Too by Sarah Nicholas and the upcoming A Place For Us by Julie Hammerle.
Alex Yuschik completed an internship with literary agent Mary Kole at Moveable Type Management and is now interning with editor Theresa Cole at Entangled Publishing. She’s a writer as well, and was a runner-up for the American Academy of Poets award at her university. She has been published in several literary magazines, including Tellus, Stone Highway Review, Print-Oriented Bastards, and burntdistrict. She’s currently in graduate school working toward her Ph.D in mathematics. Alex’s love of language and poetic training in her undergraduate program enable her to help writers hone their imagery, build tension over time, and execute climactic scenes with emotional precision. Having interned with a literary agent and a publisher, she’s familiar with current trends and what it takes to stand out, from the query letter to a full manuscript. Her day job in a technical field inspires her to be rigorous with her copy-editing and keep her grammar skills sharp, while her night job as a writer has taught her how to craft a unique voice and develop a satisfying plot and memorable characters. She brings both an industry intern’s experience and zeal and a fellow artist’s respect and honesty to her editorial work, and is utterly thrilled that she gets to help more stories go out into the world. She’s on Twitter at @AlexYuschik and blogs at A Countable Infinity and The Secret Life of Writers.
