    Do you find yourself in the querying spirit this spring?

    Or have you, perhaps, a burning question for a literary icon?

    If yes or yes, consider checking out the second annual auction hosted by Literary Agents of Change, a nonprofit “dedicated to providing access, education, and support to individuals from historically marginalized, underrepresented and BIPOC communities” who aspire to careers in agent-ing.

    This humdinger organization offers a ten week fellowship for college students every summer, and runs a mentorship program for industry professionals. All auction profits will go to supporting these endeavors, and other programming aligned with LAC’s worthy mission.

    Interested participants can bid on manuscript critiques, bookish “swag,” ARCs, book bundles, and AMAs with industry insiders. This year’s offerings include such career kindling as a roundtable with Avid Reader’s press team, or a chat with the bestselling fantasy author, A.Y. Chao.

    Bidding starts on June 10th, and you can register here.

    Go on, give ’em a gander! Your manuscript may thank you, and it’s for a great cause: diversifying a historically pale profession.

    There’s truly never been a better time to support representative mastheads.
