Literary Assistant to Suzie Townsend
As a bookseller turned publishing lover, Olivia has always had the bug for books. After several years of working at The Chatham Bookseller in her small college town, she landed at her school’s literary magazine, The Literary Review, working in the editorial department. While pursing her Masters degree in Creave Writing, Olivia worked as an publicity intern at Catapult, Counterpoint, and Soft Skull Press. In getting to work with amazing such books and their amazing authors, her excitement for the literary world has only grown.
Olivia is always chasing her next favorite literary fiction novel or devouring BIPOC romances and psychological horror novels. She loves books that subvert their genre and narratives that illuminate topics and people that are often overlooked. Olivia is very excited to find a home at New Leaf Literary!
