About this course:Creating a book (whether it be a picture book or an epic adult tome) is a highly complex and collaborative process involving many players. A literary agent’s success hinges in part on their ability to build relationships on either side of the publication process. This includes identifying and nurturing writers through the various stages of their careers, and understanding what publishers want and need for upcoming projects. This course will give students an understanding of successful techniques, practices, and philosophies for building these networks. Students leave the course with a clear understanding of how all players in the book publishing industry are interdependent and interconnected, and what skills an agent must hone in order to maintain the collaborative spirit and, consequently, produce the best literature possible.
