The Author’s Checklist:
An Agent’s Guide To Editing Your Manuscript (To Find An Agent)

with
Elizabeth Kracht

Most manuscript submissions are four drafts from being ready for an agent. Time and volume prevent agents from giving authors the feedback they need to bridge the divide to agent-ready work. Literary agent Elizabeth Kracht will offer editing tips to help authors eliminate common problems in their manuscripts and attract agents.

Elizabeth Kracht joined Kimberley Cameron & Associates in the fall of 2010. She represents both literary and commercial fiction as well as nonfiction, and brings to the agency experience as a former acquisitions editor, freelance publicist and writer. In fiction, she represents literary, commercial, women’s, historical, thrillers, and mysteries. In nonfiction, she is interested in finding narrative/creative nonfiction, voice- or adventure-driven memoir, spirituality, sexuality, self-help, true crime, investigative journalism, and pet stories.
