In episode 235 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio chat for a bit before Patrick’s live interview with two literary agents: Margaret Bail (Inklings Literary Agency) and Melissa Flashman (Trident Media Group).
About Margaret Bail:
Margaret Bail has a BA in English and an MFA in Creative and Professional Writing. With years of experience editing everything from medical documents to manuscripts, as well as teaching university-level English and writing, she looks forward to working closely with new and established authors to help develop their voice and craft. Her lifelong love of stories and storytelling has her looking for books that transport her into the heart of the story, so much so that she’ll forget where she is and lose track of time while she reads.
About Melissa Flashman:
Melissa has been an agent at Trident for over ten years. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, she graduated from Wesleyan University and studied in the Ph.D. program in English at Johns Hopkins.
