Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Arielle Datz from Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
About Arielle: She started as an intern at Dunow, Carlson, & Lerner in 2011, and then worked in the foreign rights department at WME, followed by 2 years at the Elizabeth Kaplan Literary Agency. She has since returned to DCLA full-time.
