Britta takes extra care to look at your work from the point of view of a literary agent. As a full-time editor and judge of writing contests, she also has a great deal of insider knowledge regarding the next steps literary agents are taking: submitting your work to acquisition editors at publishing houses and pitching your work to subsidiary markets. She will look at your work from the dual lens of artistry and marketability. We offer three Agent Submissions Packages outlined briefly below.
