Are you puzzled about exactly what it is that a literary agent does? Would you like to understand more about the business side of book publishing and what’s involved in author / publisher contracts? Marilyn Biderman of the Transatlantic Agency will cover the basics. Topics include the author / agent relationship, what an agent is looking for in a client, how an agent approaches the submission process, and the differences between having a publisher sell your rights and having an agent do so. With lots of time for questions, this workshop will give you the basics of what an author needs to know about the business of book publishing.
