Meet Literary Agent, Jamie Cowen, Director at The Ampersand Agency.

Jamie Cowen, Director at The Ampersand Agency, will be in conversation with one of his authors, Ali Harper, at The Leeds Library on Thursday 17th May.
What do literary agents do? Do you need one? How do you get one? It’s a golden opportunity for writers to ask all those questions and get some great advice.
Jamie and Ali will talk about the author-agent relationship, what it means for both of them and how they worked together on The Disappeared, Ali’s debut novel which is published in eBook by Harper Collins on 18th May. Followed by a Q&A.
