Although it seems like an obvious enough question, it's one that many writers don't know the complete answer to. Literary agent Nathan Bransford has an excellent blog post from the agent's perspective, and Jofie Ferrari-Adler offers his take, from the editor's perspective, in his article "Necessary Agent," from the July/August 2010 issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.

After having a less-than-ideal experience with her first two literary agents, Belle Boggs, one of the five debut authors featured in our current issue's First Fiction 2010, finally found a great agent who is an active partner in her publishing career. We didn't have room in the print magazine to include the full story of her agent ups and downs, but she was kind enough to write about it for the blog.

Literary agent Bill Clegg of William Morris Endeavor who represents authors such as Rivka Galchen, Shane Jones, Daniyal Mueenuddin, and Salvatore Scibona—and even a few poets, including Mary Jo Bang, Mark Doty, and Rebecca Wolff—made publishing headlines this month, not for a recent sale, but for debuting as an author.
