Posts Tagged ‘Meet the Agents and Acquisition Editors’

Getting to talk to an agent or an acquisition editor is a valuable experience.

What does an agent do?  What does an acquisition editor do?

An agent represents the author.  Agent earns his/her commission when he/she lands a publisher for the author.  An acquisition editor buy authors’ works for the publisher he/she works for; publisher offers the author a contract (publisher buys/author sells the rights to publish); agent gets his/her 15% commission.
