Literary Agent: Fiction
Literary agents are necessary for publishing literary fiction, commercial fiction, genre fiction, and mainstream fiction at literary publishing houses. Getting a literary agent for fiction is key to finding a way to publish your fiction book or manuscript. Before you consider self-publishing a novel, consider finding a literary agent to represent your fiction.
You may want to research literary agents who specialize in fiction by using market guides to literary agents, or listings and directories of literary agents. But because listings and directories can be out-of-date and faulty—and because finding a literary agent for your fiction can take so much time—you should consider using Writer’s Relief to target your writing to the proper literary agents who acquire fiction.
