What can an agent do for you?

Literary and dramatic agents are engaged in the marketing of rights to literary properties.

 

They serve as their clients’ representatives with respect to the clients’ literary work. They review their clients’ work and advise them about its quality and potential marketability, and the possible strategy for securing its publication. An agent’s relationship to a client is fiduciary and includes fiscal responsibility for funds collected on the client’s behalf.

 

Your Agent May:

  • Offer editorial guidance.
  • Establish contacts for you with firms and persons who are acquiring rights to literary and/or dramatic material.
  • Advise you about current trends conditions, practices, and contractual terms.
  • Market your literary material and rights therein. Negotiate and review licensing agreements.
  • Review royalty statements.
  • Monitor licensees’ marketing of your work.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
