Description

Today our episode feels a little bit like show and tell or career day at school. We are finding out all about what a literary agent does. Our guest this week is Alice Speilburg, the founder of and one of the literary agents at Speilburg Literary Agency in Louisville, Kentucky.

She learned her trade working with both publishers and a literary agency in New York City and then Hurricane Sandy happened. Her home in New Jersey was destroyed and she decided it was time to come home to Kentucky. She founded her agency in 2013, and she represents authors like Angela Jackson-Browne and James Markert.

Alice gives us a 101 crash course in how it all works and what a writer should know before sending their work to an agent. And she gives us a sneak peak into what book trends we may see in the next few years.
