Agents and managers play a unique and essential role in shaping the careers of their clients. A good representative plays many roles - career counselor, motivational speaker, cheerleader, therapist - and brings their signature tenacity and passion to each. The agents and managers below have nurtured the careers of this year’s Young and Hungry writers. From finding the diamonds in a rough pile of weekend reads to closing their client’s first big deal, a good representative will always be a writers strongest advocate.
