Writers and agents give their brutally honest take on the fight over fees and conflicts

If I had to sum it up, it’s comfortable, awkward and embarrassing because as much as people like to think that agents are swimming in a room full of money, the majority of us are grinders who are working so [expletive] hard to get these deals. Now, writers are probably the most underappreciated talent in the whole ecosystem. There’s been this history of using and abusing writers. So I feel they are taking it out on the agents. But we are fighting on your behalf, so it’s ridiculous.
