Your literary agent is likely to be the most important person in your writing career, yet most authors will agree it’s harder to get a good agent than it is a good publisher. Agents sell books, yes, but they do so much more. This workshop will deal with every aspect of professional representation, including how to select an agent from the hundreds out there, how to approach them, how to sign with one, what you can expect in the agent-author relationship, and how to end a relationship with an agent that isn’t working out (as frequently happens despite due diligence). Over the course of my career, I have experienced a variety of agent relationships, and I will share some of my personal experiences as well as those of my writer friends (identities shielded, of course!)
