Q4U: Advice for Literary Agents
Remember a couple weeks ago when we had Help Your Fellow Writers Day? Well, you stepped up to the plate and it was a rousing success. Since you all did such a great job of offering advice, I decided to let you do it again. This time, the theme is “Help your local literary agent.”
The agents who take the time to blog are committed to helping you understand the publishing business, and helping you understand us. We try to explain what the business is like for us and what we need from you.
So writers, help agents understand you. What do agents need to know about you? What do I need to know in order to be able to serve writers better?
Let’s be honest, I already know you hate the waiting aspect of publishing, whether it’s finding an agent or waiting for responses from publishers. I already know you hate it when agents don’t respond to queries. Let’s go beyond that, deeper than that. What do I need to know about you?
Leave your answers in the comments, and have a good weekend!
