WAE Network’s mission is to bring writers, agents and editors together in ways that will improve how we communicate with each other, as well as providing another avenue for you to connect with quality future clients.
JEFF HERMAN’S GUIDE TO BOOK PUBLISHERS, EDITORS & LITERARY AGENTS (500,000+ copies sold), achieves what it can as a hard-copy product. But the digital revolution has opened the gates for innovative applications and experiences. The entire universe of writers, agents and editors can discover and understand each other like never before in a social network designed just for us. Technology’s dramatic march forward is challenging agents to reassess the range of services we provide. More than ever, agents and writers must learn to work with each other in new ways.
As a literary agent on the WAE Network, you are entitled to your own page where you will be free to express yourself as a professional and as a person. Your profile content and updates can be revised in real time by you, and only you. You may post blogs, videos, photos, and announcements, and network with writers, editors and other agents as much as you wish. The exciting features will include a dedicated location for agents to talk exclusively to each other. Though some of us see each other at conferences or trade shows, many of us never meet. We are all experiencing the flux of the changing industry in unison. We can compare notes, swap stories and support each other; learn who specializes in what and form strategic alliances. We all need to stay on the cutting-edge and help each other as a community with shared interests in order to navigate the waters of an industry that is moving quickly ahead of itself. Join the conversation; grow professionally and personally, and have fun along the way.
