I want to know what you think of the term 'Gatekeepers' for agents. Personally, I don't like it. It sounds elitist and condescending and as if they are bouncers that are supposed to keep people out. In reality agents want to find good stories, they want people to be ready to publish. For what it's worth I don't hear many agents using it, mostly writers who are maybe having a hard time.
What do you think? Is Gatekeeper appropriate or not? How do you view it?
