Novel Ideas: Literary Agents, Writers and the Law

April 18, 2014

By Jeremy M. Evans ‘11, Vice Chair, Entertainment & Sports Law Section of San Diego County Bar Association

On Wednesday, April 16, 2014, attorney and author Vince F. Aiello, TJSL Associate Dean William Byrnes, and Mary Wenzel '10 founder of Write Law, discussed writing as a way to grow and benefit your law practice.

The event was presented by the Entertainment & Sports Law and Intellectual Property Law Sections of the San Diego County Bar Association. The program covered authorship, negotiating publishing deals, literary agents, and content writing for client leads.

Vince Aiello gave some practical advice on what literary agents do for their clients. What literary agents do: navigate, edit, cheer lead, negotiate, and payment mitigation (their commission). What literary agents do not do: guarantee a sale, level of income, or fame; they are not attorneys and do not write contracts, and they are not ghostwriters. Vince Aiello closed by adding that there are several good literary agents in town. He should know as the author of two novels, with one more in the works.
