Heather Flaherty of The Bent Agency, Alexandra Penfold of Upstart Crow Literary and Alec Shane of Writers House were on November 10. - Responding to rumours that "your mailboxes are piling up," Flaherty strongly consented and said: "There are rising times", quoting the New Year' s resolution period as such a period that she sees an inflow of New Years.
Many of the agents agreed: While some agents refuse to answer if it's been a while since you hear about a filing, it's worthwhile to take a gentle look back. Maintaining the commentary on websites like QueryTracker are a good way to see what the answering time of agents should be, the panellist proposed.
- The agents agreed they weren't discouraged about long waits. - In terms of messaging, the agents all said it was a great place to stay engaged in the talk and sharing your interest in what they were working on, but it's not a place to pit. "It also seemed fairly universal "not cool" to "cold tweet" pastes for the agents, Flaherty said.
- As far as Pitching, Flaherty suggested to be "yourself" and to mention if there was any way the jug could hear about the agents, be it from a prior meeting, or a book the agents the authors were working on "and actually read," Penfold said, to show that the template is specifically for the agents.
"An awesome song will get my attention," said Flaherty. - The agents were unanimous that what they were looking for in a script is a powerful sound. And if the vocal is powerful, it will be heard throughout the book. - Diversity is also something the agents said they wanted to see more in scripts, and that "the writers are crying out for it," says Flaherty. cryingly.
"This should be seamless," indicating that book variety should not serve to make the book more varied, but rather to mirror an organically real situation. - Flaherty suggested to borrow a line from Cassandra Clare and use the abbreviation "BICHOK: buttert in chair, hand on keyboard! Please, don't forget!
" The agents all agree that the opportunity to submit the work showed them that the writer would be able to invest the necessary amount of material to produce a work that could be published.
