Discussion: Agents For Today’s Author

I just registered to attend a talk on Agents For Today’s Author on Tuesday night, March 13, in Cambridge, MA. The evening describes some questions I, myself, have had recently, especially because I’ve never had an agent: “Given the rapid changes taking place in publishing, writers now need to ask themselves a host of new questions: Do I even need an agent? If so, what should I be looking for in an agent today that might not have been necessary five years ago?”

This is sponsored by Grub Street, self-described as “the second largest independent centers for creative writing in the United States.” They also host the Muse and the Marketplace conference, which I’m musing about attending this May. I haven’t attended their programs or workshops before, but I’m interested in what an agent might do for my Sherlock Holmes novel. Yes, it’s already published, but with all due humility, I would love to shop it out as a movie! I know I’m naive and a newbie about that, granted. So I think I’d need a good agent to help with that. It’s new territory for me!
