Literary agents are like anyone else. Some are efficient, connected, and clear communicators. Some are not. Brad Schreiber takes the writer’s side in examining the best ways to work with agents, managers, and attorneys.

This webinar will discuss the operations of literary agents, what pitfalls the writer should avoid, and how to ideally find and work with agents.

Agents at conferences will tell you what they want from writers. But what should you expect from them? And what should you be cautious about? This is the only course ever taught that takes the writer’s side and includes guerrilla tactics to get the best responses from agents.

It’s also the only course taught by a writer who has worked in books, TV, films, and theatre. Thus, writers in all media will benefit and have their particular issues addressed.
