Recommended Resource: How to Approach a Literary Agent

Well… this is more just a recommended article/twitter feed than a resource, but I really think it’s worth your time. As someone who will be shifting her focus to finding an agent this fall, I found this article by Juliet Mushens to be incredibly helpful. It’s simple and straightforward, but still very helpful, especially when it comes to crafting that cover letter.

Juliet also has a twitter feed where she answers questions from prospective writers on Sunday night. I plan on sitting it on this week’s. Granted, it’s worth mentioning that she is an agent from the UK, so some of the specifics might be different to those trying to break into an American market.

Thanks to the always awesome tor.com for posting this great article.
