So often these days, books and movies get talked about in the same breath. It’s no surprise, then, that I get questions from screenwriters as well as book writers at DearEditor.com. I received a question about finding an agent for a script this week, and I was fortunate to be able to call on Eddie Gamarra, Executive Producer of James Dashner’s upcoming film adaptation of The Maze Runner and literary manager with the Gotham Group, to field it. Thanks, Eddie, for putting on Guest Editor hat today!
Here’s the question Eddie took on:
I was talking to my screenwriting professor about getting an agent. He informed me that writer-directors do not get talent agents, but have to get literary agents. I have a producer already interested in my work, so I thought it might be safe if I sought representation. Is this true? How do I go about that?
