Literary agents: what editors need to know
Details: What do agents actually do? And how can they help foster better relationships between publishers and authors? The business of publishing can be mysterious to those who don’t work within it. Authors generally have very little idea of what it takes, and how many people, to get their book ready for the market. Demystifying the process can make all the difference to a working relationship between editor and author.
