The Association of Authors’ Representatives (the professional organization for literary agents) has changed its name to the Association of American Literary Agents. They say the new name “better reflects the membership and aligns the organization with its core mission of empowering and educating literary agents.” They’re updating their website to reflect the new branding and to “offer deeper resources for members and writers.” They’ve added a non-profit division, Literary Agents of Change, devoted to charitable work and building “a more equitable publishing industry.” It will “provide stipends for interns and a mentorship program to historically underrepresented groups, to help increase recruitment, retention and promotion in the profession.”

We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
