BIGSCORE AGENCY CHARGING FEE
I just got word that BigScore Productions, a literary agency, has changed their policy and is now charging a $50 "processing fee" for unsolicited submissions. If you want to send them an unsolicted submissions, put your e-mail address in the subject line and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then receive an invoice from PayPal requesting payment with a major credit card. Once they get the payment they will ask you to send your work. In response you will either get a paragrpah on why they want to further consider your work (at no additional cost), or why they are passing on your proposal.I don't recommend working with agents who charge reading fees.
