New Agent Alert: Josh Getzler of Writers House

Editor's note: As of summer 2011, Josh is now agenting with the Hannigan Salky Getzler Agency. Reminder: Newer agents are golden opportunities for new writers because they’re likely building their client list; however, always make sure your work is as perfect as it can be before submitting, and only query agencies that are a great fit for your work. Otherwise, you’re just wasting time and postage.
