Workshop: Behind (and Beside) Authors: the Work of a Literary Agent
The literary agent figure is not common in Latin American countries, but there is increasingly more interest in knowing their function within the book production chain and how the intrinsic objectives of the profession are achieved.
In the words of Guillermo Schavelzon, an internationally recognized agent, “A literary agent is a representative of writers, whose mission is to find the greatest number of readers possible in all languages and all over the world, for the writers he or she represents”.
However, their work is must more vast and complex than that. The object of this workshop is to explain in detail the work of a literary agent so that participants can understand their function.
Capacity limited to 30 participants
