Writing Advice

Literary Agents Every Aspiring Author Should be Following on Twitter


Ready to start querying that manuscript? Or should I say – ready to start thinking about when you will be querying that manuscript (even if you haven’t actually started that book yet – but hey, you know you WILL start, you WILL finish, and you WILL be querying in your future). One thing you may want to do is start following some agents on twitter. They’re a great source for information. A lot of them will do Q&A days. They give some great info about the whole process of looking for an agent AND it’s a perfect way to search out an agent that you feel might be a good fit for you and your novel.

So, here are some agents you should most definitely be following on Twitter –
