We are thrilled to announce that educator and author Alina Mitchell has joined our literary agent team!
Alina is no stranger to our agency. For a few years, she worked with Amanda Luedeke to sell the rights to her book about her great-aunt, fashion icon Ophelia DeVore. Though the book didn’t land, Alina knew that she had something special. She self-published the book and went on to sell audio rights. Soon after, she attracted the attention of a film production company.
We love her hustle. We love her never-give-up approach, but we also love her positive spirit and ability to dig in and do the hard work.
Alina Mitchell holds a Bachelor of Arts in English/Professional Writing with a minor in Business Management from Oakwood University, a Master of Arts in English & Secondary Education from the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH) and an Instructional Design/eLearning Certificate from Oregon State University.
She has worked as a secondary English teacher, a principal, and a higher education administrator. She currently freelances as a writer with Darklight Studios and evaluates standardized writing exams with the Educational Testing Services.
Alina is actively looking for nonfiction proposals including memoir, biographies, how-to, elementary & secondary education topics, religion/spirituality, narrative nonfiction, and new perspectives in history, arts & culture.
