Follow Agent Vickie Motter’s Excellent Blog

If you are interested in finding an agent, first realize that the field is highly competitive and it may take a while.

In 2012 I attended a number of writer’s conferences and focused on the presentations of agents. I haven’t queried any of them yet, because my current novel wasn’t quite ready, but I gathered information, and even read for one in a session at Pike’s Peak. Pitch sessions, one-on-one critiques and group readings are all good ways to meet agents at conferences. So are casual conversations at parties and even meals at those big round tables.

You don’t have to attend a conference to find out more about an agent that interests you, though. More and more of the ones who are interested in finding new talent are sharing tips and submission instructions through their blogs.

Here is a blog I came across this morning from a suggestion on my Twitter page.

Navigating the Slush Pile.
