The attention of a literary agent is something everything every writer craves.
Some attain it with very few rejections. Others devote years to their craft without ever seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
Fortunately for writers many literary agents offer insight on their profession through social media and at writing conferences.
The access to literary agents is now more freely available than at any other point in history.
Consequently, writers are able to gleam snippets of knowledge and submission tips that better prepare them for their vocation.
However, of greater importance to the writer in the short term is: how to get a literary agent in the first place.
In this seminar hosted by Authoright at The London Book Fair, two agency representatives share their views on how a writer can attract a literary agent to their work and the pitfalls to avoid on their journey to publication.
