Faculty Feature: Allison Hunter & Alexis Hurley from InkWell Management

Allison Hunter & Alexis Hurley

"The publishing consultations offered a great deal of useful information. They gave great general knowledge (with many specifics) but also took the time to respond to the interests and needs of every participant." - 2012 Workshop Attendee

Allison Hunter began her publishing career in 2005 working for the Los Angeles-based literary publicity firm, Kim-from-L.A. She then spent three years in law school, during which she was a summer associate at the global law firm Latham & Watkins and the head writer of the law school musical. After practicing pro bono family law at a San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit, Allison returned to the publishing world at InkWell, where she is actively acquiring fiction (particularly women’s fiction and romance), memoir, narrative nonfiction, cultural studies and prescriptive titles, including cookbooks. She has a B.A. in American Studies and Creative Writing from Stanford University and a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.
Alexis Hurley started her career in 1998 and has been at InkWell since its inception in 2004. Alexis works in the dual capacity of Co-Director of Foreign Rights and agent of domestic works in the areas of literary and commercial fiction, memoir, narrative non-fiction and more. She is a native of the Berkshires and a graduate of Dickinson College where she received her BA in English and Art History and a minor in Italian.

Allison and Alexis will be co-teaching a Publishing Intensive Weekend Workshop at the Taos Summer Writers' Conference this year. It is a unique opportunity to find out all you've ever wanted to know about publishing. Learn more here.
