Guide To Literary Agents
“How do I find a good guide to literary agents who represent fiction and nonfiction?” Every good novelist needs a good literary agent, but how do you find one? There are guides to literary agents online and there are guides to literary agents in market books. There are online listings of literary agents and there are listings of agents in magazines. There are directories on the Internet that take you to literary agents’ sites and there are directories in the white pages. The trouble is, using the information in market books or an online guide to literary agents isn’t always the best way to find an agent for your novel or nonfiction book manuscript. Directories and listings of literary agents for your book may contain scams, bad information, omissions, and more.
At Writer’s Relief we help creative writers target fiction book manuscripts by researching agents or editors and their preferences. Our database is a private guide to literary agents that contains thousands of individually researched and frequently updated listings of literary agents. Although all market books and guides claim to be “the” definitive market book or guide, our staff cross-checks all information in market books and all listings on the Internet—PLUS we receive hundreds of personal comments and responses from literary agents every single month. We know what individual agents want. You won’t find a more detailed and up-to-date list of literary agents anywhere online or in print.
Save yourself lots of time and make more focused submissions by using our services to develop a strong submission strategy. Click www.WritersRelief.com for more.
You can use a guide to literary agents, a directory of literary agents, or a listing of literary agents to try to get an agent to pay attention to your novel or nonfiction book. But generally, it’s been our experience that the information contained in any single literary market guide is middling or even useless for writers who are seriously trying to find agent representation. To prove that you are exemplary and “special” your submissions need to be exemplary and “special.” Writer’s Relief can help by getting your work into the right hands.
