Bridget Smith began her career at Dunham Literary, Inc. in June 2011.
Previously, she was an intern at Don Congdon Associates, worked at a secondhand book store in Connecticut, and evaluated short story submissions for Tor.com under Liz Gorinsky and Patrick Nielsen Hayden.
She graduated from Brown University in 2010. While there, she studied anthropology and archaeology, worked as a radio DJ, fenced on the varsity team, and helped design an experiment that she later performed in microgravity at NASA.
A lifelong fan of children’s books, she’s looking for middle grade and young adult novels in a range of genres, including fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, romance, and contemporary, plus anything that bends the rules of genre. She is actively seeking books with underrepresented or minority characters.
She is also seeking fiction for adults, especially fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, and literary women’s fiction.
In accordance with her college degree, she’s interested in informational, literary nonfiction, especially science or history written by experts for a general audience.
