Ask A Real Live Literary Agent


Rumpus readers will definitely want to read The Toast’s new series “A Literary Agent Answers Your Fevered Questions.” (NB—the questions cover a wide range of feverity, so if yours just kind of has a warm forehead, feel free to send it along.)

Written by Ginger Clark, a literary agent at Curtis Brown, it offers valuable advice for writers looking to find a home for their manuscripts.

The latest installment covers novellas, market research, and…tabletop gaming?
