Seems simple enough to me. You need to communicate with the agency, they
need to communicate with you. That way both parties make sure you're not
double-submitted. All the great recruiters I've worked with made sure they
let me know when and to whom they wanted to submit my resume, so I could
refuse if I chose. Now if I could only see the resume they send before they
do it!

So you would send a writer's resume to a client without first informing the
writer?
Is that a common practice? I've only dealt with a recruiter once, and that
was many
years ago, so things may be different now, but they notified me before they
submitted my resume. It certainly seems that checking with the writer before
you
send their resume would prevent you from submitting a candidate who had
already
been submitted.

There certainly are.
