Understanding how agents operate will help you find an agent appropriate for your work, as well as alert you about the types of agents to avoid. Many writers take for granted that any agent who expresses interest in their work is trustworthy. They’ll sign a contract before asking any questions and simply hope everything will turn out all right. We often receive complaints from writers regarding agents after they have lost money or have work bound by contract to an ineffective agent. If writers put the same amount of effort into researching agents as they did writing their manuscripts, they would save themselves unnecessary grief.

An agent can be overwhelmed with queries, especially if the agent recently has spoken at a conference or has been featured in an article or book. Also, some agents specify in their listings that they never return materials of any kind. For face-to-face contact, many writers prefer to meet agents at Conferences. By doing so, writers can assess an agent’s personality, attend workshops and have the chance to get more feedback on their work than they get by mailing submissions and waiting for a response.
