For Writers

"Miss Snark" is the New York literary agent who blogs anonymously to prevent more writers from wasting her time and embarassing themselves by being ignorant of the publishing world. Check out the above link for her entertaining contest. She is now publicly tearing apart book ideas from the 700 people who emailed her yesterday. See what the average day is like for a literary agent. Out of 700, maybe 30 writers will be asked to submit the first page of their book. Out of those 30, maybe 5 will be asked to send the rest of the first chapter. Out of those 30, maybe 4 will be asked to send the whole book. Out of those 4, I expect that between 0 and 4 will get representation. Not that getting published is competitive or anything.
