Defining the new role for literary agents
from Publishers Weekly
The specific question at a late day panel at the London Book Fair was not about whether literary agents matter, but about their future. Hosted in the LBF AuthorLounge curated by Authoright, and filled with a crowd of what looked to be predominantly self-published authors, panelist-agents Andrew Lownie (who has an eponymous firm), and Hellie Ogden (who just joined Janklow & Nesbit in the U.K.) discussed what they see as the new role of today's book agents.
