Q. You mention that agents can be found at the WGA website. But their list only covers California, and says nothing about which agents will accept unsolicited scripts. And do you have any recommendations for Toronto agents who might be willing to look at unsolicited script?
Unless you're in New York, you almost certainly want a California agent. If you are in New York, you might want a California agent anyway, but you can also check the WGA East's list of East Coast agents.
If you're working in Canada, the WGC has a list of Canadian agents
in various cities. You want an agent in the town you want her to get you work in. Say you live in Vancouver. If you don't know the Vancouver producers yet, then start there with Vancouver agents. If you've got Vancouver covered, you might want an agent in Toronto who'll get you work there. If you live in Toronto but want work in LA, check out the Alpern Agency, for example.
As far as unsolicited scripts go, check out this post from January.
I've blogged about agents quit a bit, really. Check out all 22 posts so far
