I’m thinking it’s time to bring a literary agent to LitPark, but I want you to be a part of the interviewing process.
Many of you know how difficult and demoralizing it is to try to get an agent. Some of you have been trying for years – cold-querying, reducing your beautiful manuscripts to dreaded single-page summaries, and sending the first fifty pages to one stranger after another.
Many of you are past that stage, and now you are stuck with aloof agents who don’t return your emails, or sweet but completely ineffective agents who have told you things like, “I’m sorry. Your manuscript is all shopped out.”
Do you really need an agent these days? What about all the folks right here at LitPark, who sold their manuscripts to respected publishers without any middlemen at all?
Well, now’s your chance to share your opinions, vent your frustrations, and ask all the questions you’ve been saving up. And in November (or thereabouts), I’ll bring an agent to the park to give some answers.
Have at it in the comments section.
