A literary agent promotes an author and their work to publishers, directors, theatre managers, radio, film and television producers.
The literary agent supports the author by handling their finances whilst they focus on their writing. This could involve approaching publishers on their behalf, securing book deals and commissioning work for them. Agents take a percentage of the profits from the book sales and build up contacts in the industry.
