As Ross Yoon's literary assistant, Jay Venables evaluates submissions, edits proposals, scouts new clients, and keeps the agency's social presence current. She is an ardent reader of narrative nonfiction and especially delights in personal histories, identity memoir, essay collections, true crime accounts, and popular science.
Outside of work, her "To be Read" pile includes contemporary fiction and classic literature alike. She is also an aficionado of underground music; you can find her supporting local bands on weekends and expanding her collection of vinyls despite limited shelf space among her books.
Jay is a recent graduate of the University of Richmond with a BA in English Literature and a minor in Law and the Liberal Arts.
