Miss Snark, the literary agent
When it comes to being an aspiring writer – ie, a writer to aspires to a range of publishing interests – the Miss Snark Literary Agent blog can serve as a valuable insight into the life of a literary agent.
For one, she provides clear information on what – and what not – to do in the submissions process.
She also helps illustrate just how challenging the life of a literary agent can be.
Here’s a great selection of informative posts from Miss Snark’s now sadly defunct blog:
- The things you do that turn your query into toast
- 10 Nitwiticisms
- Not quite nitwittery cause you didn’t DO it
- 3 Things You Did Today That Scream “Don’t Take Me Seriously”
- Stop wasting your time
- Ok, I know you’re going to hate me for this but…
- Slush pile ROI
- Out of order chapters
One of the biggest challenges to being published often seems to round on the writer themselves – lack of knowledge of the industry, and lack of professionalism. At the very least, Miss Snark’s blog can help address the former.
