The Rejections That Hurt Most: Author-Agent Empathy, Revision & Rejection as Protection With Agent Monica Rodriguez

Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Soundcloud.

We are so happy to welcome Monica Rodriguez, agent at Context Literary, to the podcast!

Not only is Monica Jessica’s Agency colleague in charge of Brand Management (and helping writers promote their work), she’s also an agent with expertise in branding, marketing, and helping creatives refine their ideas. Plus, she’s an agented writer on submission, so she has empathy for both sides of the desk.

We talk about which rejections to ignore, when to incorporate edits, the author-agent empathy gap, and whether rejections for clients or her own writing hurt more (you may be surprised).

We also love a happy story of how she celebrated the recent sale of one of her books, and how she plans to do the same in the future.
