Also, sign up for the free biweekly GLA newsletter. Simply go to the GLA homepage: www.guidetoliteraryagents.com and enter your e-mail there. The newsletter features a list of upcoming writers' conferences where agents will be, questions posed to writers, and a lot of the usual content (interviews, tips, etc.)

Maybe you're feeling saucy and want to guest blog? That's certainly doable. I am always looking for writers to submit a "How I Got My Agent" guest blog. It's a medium-sized column that explains the exact process you went through en route to signing with a rep - showing the highs and lows of your journey. If you are interested in contributing (and getting a little book promotion!), write to me at literaryagent@fwmedia.com and I'll send you some guidelines.
