Talking to Literary Agents

In preparing for a writer’s conference, I have been hunting around online for advice on how to talk to agents and editors. A simple task, I know, but kind of intimidating. You’d think I was preparing to speak to God.

Turns out I’m not alone. Turns out the agents can sense our fear a mile away. It’s not that hard when some poor soul is sobbing on your shoulder seconds after spewing something resembling a pitch.

For all of you preparing to go face to face with an agent or editor, take a minute and read this from agent, Janet Reid. Then read this one from Mary Kole. They’ll give you some perspective, and God knows we can all use a little of that.
