New York Literary Agency
« on: July 14, 2006, 12:36:26 PM »
Has anyone had dealings with the New York Literary Agency?  They have offered to reperesent me but I have to sign up to a critique sevice which they will refer me to and which will cost somewhere between $70-$90.  I have not come across this before and am therefore rather unsure whether or not to proceed. Has anyone had a similar experience?

You may want to look at the "Agency for new writers" post.  To briefly answer your question, I haven't heard anything favorable about them on any of the forums I visit.  Do ck the post mentioned above.

Nadine. Thanks for the information. I have just realised that there is a useful discussion in progress on the NYLA. I certainly won't be going forward with that agency.
Best wishes.

It never hurts to ask when you feel something isn't quite right.  Maybe it is, maybe it isn't.  I have found writers usually look out for each other, so never hesitate to ask.

DON'T DO IT

I tend to critique in a harsh manner. Please remember it is not personal, but how I prefer anyone critiqueing me to be. It is far more useful IMO.

Writers Block is 100% correct. A legitimate agent never charges anything.
