Do agents read online or print out manuscripts?
« on: December 14, 2020, 02:40:04 AM »
I know this really doesn’t matter but I am so curious. I hate reading in Word. I always convert mine to an ereader to review or else print it out. Does anyone know?

I'm sure that a lot of agents don't read requested materials in Word.

I've seen several agents say on Twitter that they transfer requested stuff to e-readers, but I have no idea how common it is overall. I can't imagine that a lot of them would print them out, just because it would get pretty expensive and would waste a ton of paper, particularly for agents who request a lot of fulls, but I could be wrong.
