Ask a Lit. Agent

I asked literary agent Thao Le from the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency if I could interview her (since I am interning there, it was easy to ask). She is real sweet and kind, and was excited about this!

I thought that this would be a great opportunity for writers, specifically those in the querying stage, to get some answers.

This link - http://http://www.dijkstraagency.com/meet-the-agents.html - will take you to the "Agents" page. There you will find a couple short paragraphs on Thao.

I will think of some questions, but I wanted to give you the opportunity to ask some questions, too! Feel free to post them on this thread, or you can send me a PM.

I'm going to give this a couple of days and then pick the ones I think will be most beneficial for us to hear the answers to. I will post the interview on my blog (and let you know on this thread) later on.

I hope you're excited about this! I know I am^^

Do agents actually read everything they get?
When does a writer need an agent?
