I've seen loads of competitions offering agent representation for novel writers over the last few weeks. Here's another one (you have to register with the site to get the details, but it's free to do that).
I was under the impression that agents had so many prospective clients they could only skim through a fraction of the manuscripts submitted to them. Now it seems many are actively seeking more novels to read. Any idea what, if anything, has changed?
I don't think these figures are supposed to represent agents or authors, but for all I know they might. Anyone got a clue?
