It’s HARD to find a literary agent.Writing Improvement Software

Yes, the querying process itself is hard, but it’s also hard to find their websites sometimes. There’s so many different places to look: Twitter, QueryTracker, Publisher’s Marketplace, ManuscriptWishList, the Writer’s Market books… where do you start?

You start right here.

I created this list of literary agencies by collating the information from all the sources I listed above. It may not include every agency out there, but includes 350 agencies, so it’s thorough. I’ll continue to add more as I find them.

If you think you’ve queried every agent possible, you haven’t. Even if you’ve sent out 200 query letters, you still haven’t even queried all the agencies, let alone all the agents!

That said, I didn’t compile this list so that you can mass email all the agents at all the offices. This is a tool to help you in your RESEARCH.

Tips for using this tool:

  • Track your queries. Write down:
    • which agent at what agency you queried, with what manuscript, and when
    • how long the agency website says it should take to hear back
  • Read and FOLLOW the agent/agency submission guidelines
  • Personalize your query
  • Don’t query another agent at the same agency while you’re still waiting to hear back from the first agent
  • Don’t nudge an agent if the agency’s website says they can’t respond to every query (unless the agent specifically says it’s okay to nudge them)
  • If it says a no is a no from the whole agency, don’t send that manuscript to another agent at the same agency
  • Move on if it says to take no response as a “no” after X weeks
  • Seriously, don’t rely on your memory! Track your submissions in a spreadsheet.

Let me know if I’ve missed an agency and I’ll add it. They just need a website to link to (or a Publisher’s Marketplace listing if there’s only one agent in the agency).
