Denise Dumars, an Author’s Representative for the Ashley Grayson Literary Agency, has announced her retirement as a literary agent. “Don’t worry; I’m not going away,” she reassures everyone. “I’m just trading in my ‘Agent’ hat for my ‘Writer’ hat.”
I have realized that in the years I’ve been a literary agent my own writing output has declined by about 90%, and since the only thing I’ve ever wanted to be is a writer, I have decided to retire from agenting in order to work on my own writing.
Dumars is a versatile writer who is especially well-known in the sf poetry field. She is a featured columnist for Star*Line, the journal of the Science Fiction Poetry Association.
