The process of getting published or finding an agent comes with its own skill set—one that can be just as essential to your career as mastering the craft of writing. And yet, many writers are uncertain about the role a literary agent can play in their lives and whether it is necessary to have one. This webinar will help you explore what an agent can (and can’t) do for you, and when (and why) it’s the right time to get an agent, so you’ll be able to navigate your literary career with confidence.

These writers may be publishing short-form pieces regularly, and are wanting to make the leap to writing a full-length book.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
