Screw the new blog, I've resurrected my old blog: Writerly Stuff.
I twit, therefore I am?
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. ~Thomas Edison
It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous. ~Robert Benchley
The Association of Authors' Agents (UK) and the Australian Literary Agents' Assocation also have codes of ethics.
These are hardly carved in stone, though. They're strictly voluntary and policed by the organizations themselves, and agents who aren't members of the organizations don't have to follow them. There's no body that provides overall oversight or licensing for agents--which is why it's so easy for unqualified people to set up literary agencies.
