Writers: Your Bid!

Posted By on Wed, Jun 24, 2015 at 11:17 AM

Do you have a book manuscript? Need some professional advice on it? And you’d like to help out a good cause? Make an online bid — or bids — by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, June 29th. The winning bid will receive 20 minutes of sound advice, by phone, from a New York literary agent.

As she does every summer, agent (and native Memphian) Anna Olswanger is participating in the Born Free Foundation’s annual online auction. Born Free is committed to alleviating wild-animal suffering throughout the world, and Born Free USA’s “Keep Wildlife in the Wild” auction is for one week only, with bidding open now. Browse the auction website for the wide variety of items up for bid and go here for more on Olswanger’s item, valued at $350, and to place your bid. (As of this writing, bidding stood at $120.) All proceeds from the auction go directly to funding Born Free’s efforts.

Olswanger, herself an author, launched Olswanger Literary LLC last year after many years with Liza Dawson Associates in New York. As her auction page points out, she specializes in children’s fiction and nonfiction, in addition to adult nonfiction and selected adult fiction. Past clients have had their manuscripts accepted at major publishing houses and gone on to be award winners and New York Times bestselling authors. Who knows, then, what 20 minutes with Anna Olswanger could mean for that manuscript of yours?
