Reminder: Newer agencies 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.
Cool new alert to see. Will Entertainment is looking for children's book writers whose writing is good enough to brave both the literary and film worlds. Awesome opportunity, but your work better be up to snuff to challenge both worlds!
Important note: Garrett Hicks is a literary and script manager, meaning he is similar to an agent but not exactly an agent, per say.
