What Can A Literary Agent Do For You?

Literary agents may represent you in the following ways:

  • Review your work.
  • Provide an assessment of its quality and potential marketability.
  • Offer editorial guidance.
  • Suggest possible strategies for securing its publication or production.
  • Advise about trends, market conditions, practices, and contractual terms.
  • Establish contacts with firms and persons acquiring rights to appropriate types of literary material.
  • Market the work and rights therein, including negotiation and review of licensing agreements.
  • If a work is licensed, monitor licensees’ marketing activity.
  • Review royalty statements and keep the author informed in financial matters.
