How to Attract an Agent: From Query to Career
Oftentimes the decisions of literary agents can seem bewildering. Why do some authors get hundreds of manuscript requests, while others don’t get any? How can an agent possibly judge the strength of a project from only a query? How can they determine a book’s potential by the opening pages alone?
In this OnDemand webinar, literary agent Andrea Somberg discusses the four major factors that determine every agent’s decision. She demystifies the process and explains the strategic questions that every agent asks, helping you position your project for optimal success. She reveals the steps to crafting a query letter that will yield results and multiple manuscript requests, and the steps to finding an agent that will help you realize your dreams.
A literary agent for over fifteen years, Andrea Somberg represents a wide range of fiction and nonfiction, including projects for adult, young adult and middle-grade audiences. Previously an agent at the Donald Maass Agency and Vigliano Associates, she joined Harvey Klinger Literary Agency in the spring of 2005.
