A Tip on Managers vs. Agents From This eBook Excerpt:
Script agents have the ability to sell your work. They’re the wheeler-dealers. They get 10 percent of what a writer makes for what they do. The problem is that agents are busy people who usually have a very full list of clients and a full plate of work each day. Getting them to read your work and sign you as a client is difficult. Script managers, on the other hand, specialize in working with new writers and grooming them. A manager will collect an additional 10 or 15 percent of money made by the writer.
Whether you seek a manager or agent, remember that you shouldn’t have to pay any upfront fees for them to read your work. They make money when you make money.
