Meet Agent Sheree Bykofsky from Sheree Bykofsky Associates, Inc.
We are pleased to have Sheree Bykofsky with us at the 2018 Pennwriters Conference. Sheree will be leading a 2-hr Master Class in Pitching and participating in pitch appointments, the agent/editor panel discussion, and the Friday evening read & critiques.
Sheree’s agency represents all adult genres but is concentrating particularly on prescriptive nonfiction, especially health, business, self-help/psychology, parenting, food, spiritual, games, biography and current affairs, women’s interest,
humor, pop culture. In fiction, her agency particularly likes commercial fiction with literary appeal and mysteries. It is always looking for a bestseller in any category.
Pennwriters: What makes a manuscript and its author stand out?
Sheree: Original cliche-free writing. Fluid writing. Vivid images. Intense emotions. Good grammar.
Pennwriters: What advice do you have for writers?
Sheree: Don’t rush! If you are not ready to reveal your masterpiece to the world, use the conference as an information gathering expedition.
Pennwriters: How should a writer evaluate an agent?
Sheree: Try to get an agent who is recommended and if you want to feel secure, choose an agent who is a member of the AAR. Ask to speak to clients.
