Last week, I posted submission info on Will Entertainment. Before I knew it, Verla Kay's Web site, among others, picked up the news and spread it like wildfire. Garrett Hicks (of WE) must have gotten plenty of queries, because the next day he wrote and asked that I clarify how he is a "manager," not an "agent."
So this brings up the question: What is the difference? First of all, you should know that both are legimitate. I'm tempted to explain the details here, but an upcoming interview on the blog with literary/script manager Margery Walshaw of Evatopia will do the question more justice. It's on the way...
In the meantime, check out an explanation of the difference between agents and managers on the Writers Store Web site.
