So called “gate keepers,” with myriad routes to publication available
today – traditional, hybrid, boutique, or simply self-published (too often prematurely) – coupled with the further consolidation of what is now the Big Four houses, what role do literary agents any longer play in the industry? This panel will feature representatives from three agencies discussing what they’re looking for in writers, what they’re not, how publishing independently can undermine publisher interest, where they fit in and what they can do for you, as well as field questions from participants. Sponsored by the Sunriver Writers’ Summit.
