More Than the Middle Man: The Literary Agent

October 28, 2015 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In today’s publishing world, it has become the norm for publishers to only receive submissions that come via a literary agent, but what does it really take to excel in this oft’ overlooked role? What do literary agents look for? How do they connect authors to publishers? And what about those complicated discussion about rights and money? In the Society of Young Publishers’ next event we’ll be hearing from industry experts about how they got into agenting and what their job entails.

Join us at The Wig and Pen, 6.30pm on 28th October to hear from Peter Buckman from The Ampersand Agency and Caroline Wood from Felicity Bryan Associates about literary agents and why they’re more than just middle men.
