Laura Waters

Publishing Assistant

BIO

Laura was lucky enough to join the Gallery Books team in July 2016, after graduating from NYU with a dual BA in French and Anthropology and a minor in Creative Writing. While at NYU she interned at The Center for Fiction, McIntosh and Otis, Foundry Literary + Media, and Atria/Emily Bestler Books – growing more infatuated with publishing after each new experience. Always a lover of books, Laura grew up outside of Seattle, reading in the shade of the mighty evergreens. Her most frequent reads are adult commercial fiction and nonfiction of diverse genres, and she is always looking for a hint of magical realism and a good old-fashioned scare. She assists Jennifer Bergstrom.
