How do you get a literary agent?

For many aspiring writers, it can seem like an impossible task, and yet it's a necessary step on the road to getting your book published. But with agents receiving literally hundreds of queries per day, how can you possibly get noticed?

Tiffany has a better way.

Earlier this year, Tiffany was awarded a prestigious fellowship by the PEN America literary organization for her work in progress, the YA historical thriller Saving Caravaggio. On occasion of the awards ceremony, she takes the opportunity to spill her guts about about the ingenious (and low-effort) way she got an agent. And here's the best part: anyone can do it.

PS If you are actively looking for an agent, we suggest you listen to this episode the day it airs. (You'll soon find out why.)

Find more info about this process here.
