Episode 28: An Interview with Agent Kiana Nguyen

The Manuscript Academy Podcast

Episode 28 with Agent Kiana Nguyen

We speak with literary agent Kiana Nguyen of Donald Maass Agency about being a writer AND agent, her days as a park ranger in California and New York, and what she’d do with a Ph.D. in Anthropology.

PLUS, we talk about her unusual journey into publishing–which involved Twitter networking, a contest, and getting killed in a work of fiction, The Intern’s Handbook by Shane Kuhn: www.shanekuhn.com/the-intern-s-handbook.html

We also discuss why a form letter is just a form letter–but that still doesn’t make US feel better, and very important topics including trains that get across the country in under an hour (see www.wired.com/2013/07/elon-musk-hyperloop/).
