Interview

#83: A Sneak Peek at the Slice Literary Writers’ Conference: An Interview with Little, Brown & Co. executive editor Vanessa Mobley, by Liz Mathews

Think about the last time someone told you she (or he) works in publishing. Did you immediately assume that person was an editor? Well, for this interview we were able to snag a few moments of an honest-to-goodness editor’s time. Meet Vanessa Mobley, an executive editor with Little, Brown and Company. If you want to catch her eye, she admits that she’s pretty much looking for two things (see the second question below). And if you want to get an idea of the caliber of writers she works with, well, she’s got a few bestsellers and major prize winners under her belt.

Vanessa will be joining us on Sunday, September 11, for the How We Spot the Next Generation of Great Writers panel at the Slice Literary Writers’ conference. What better place to be to try to get spotted, yourself?
