Literary Agents

What are literary agents looking for? It’s hard to know. They all say they’re looking for something different, something to wake them up, something that stands out from the thousands of other identical submissions they receive every week. But that doesn’t explain why so much of what is published is bland, formulaic, and jumping on the back of existing trends.

Here’s one agent to avoid, but a very fun article to read!

Do you read Miss Snark's blog? Entertaining, and with some insights.

I've read Miss Snark's blog now and again, and found it very humorous and often perceptive. But I can keep up with only a few blogs regularly. Not enough hours in the day unfortunately.

And GS has taken down his article. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted anyway.
