if it’s too difficult for grown-ups, write for children

Ask Daphne! How do I do what YOU do?

camparimanoloWear brilliant shoes (like these) with aplomb? No, be an agent. As Rachel asks:

Over the past couple of years I have become interested in the world of publishing and more recently, the idea of becoming a literary agent. I only have one problem: I don’t know where to start in researching this type of career or finding out what I should do in order to make my dream come true. I was hoping maybe you would have some advice. Since I’m a junior I have been looking at colleges and trying to figure out what to do with my life, so if you have any words of wisdom, I would greatly appreciate it!

Rachel, it’s a summer Friday, and one of the things you’ll learn if you pursue a career in publishing is that publishing folks like to half half days on Friday. So, in the interest of keeping this quick, I’m going to point you to some previous posts on the subject here.

Take a look at those posts and see if they don’t give you a starting point. I’ll ask other agents on Twitter if they wouldn’t mind stopping over here with some advice as well, so keep checking back!
