Literary Agents
As D.C. Jacobson & Associates Literary Agency’s first marketing coordinator, Laurel Boruck works with authors and publishers to help get books into the hands of the readers who need them. She works with agents and authors to develop book proposals with great marketing, platform and publicity sections, and helps authors and publishers strategize on marketing plans. Before joining DCJA, Laurel was a project manager and marketing manager at Ooligan Press. Laurel holds a BA in English from the University of Oregon and an MA in Writing and Book Publishing from Portland State University, where she accidentally discovered that she was an absolute nerd when it comes to book marketing and publicity. That enthusiasm gained in the classroom was reinforced by marketing internships at Harper Perennial at HarperCollins in New York, and at Portland’s own Tin House Books. In her free time, Laurel enjoys playing pub trivia with friends and drinking strong coffee with a good book in hand.

Consultation signups with Laurel require an approved one-sheet.
