Words from the wise

Glad to see Jonny Geller on this clip a name I stored in mind many moons ago. First read an interview with this experienced literary agent over ten years ago, when his advice and name stuck. No BS.

So if you can get beyond the boorish ads (’20 locked in, followed by a fleeting, teaser ad that sneaks in before Mr Geller speaks) it is worth hearing his brief advice (2’40).

In the short clip he is addressing authors in search of an agent, yet much of his advice casts a helpful light on writing anything, from a letter to a long novel.

Geller chooses his words well. A random quote of perennial use: “Writing is about confidence, and it’s about making sure you communicate as directly as possible.”
