Literary Agent List

20130929-155924.jpg

I often get asked by new or aspiring authors at conventions or over social networks if they can submit a manuscript or proposal. Like most companies in the creative arts, we do accept submissions but only through agents and attorneys (or colleagues) with whom we already do business. This is really in the best interest of both parties, because many proposals and manuscripts may be similar to what we already have in development.

So it is a case of the old Catch-22, where a writer needs relationships but doesn’t yet have the relationships needed to break into the industry.

Well, here is a great place to start. I have listed below many of the agents and attorneys with whom I already work, along with their physical and email address.

Before you carpet bomb all of them with your big idea, be sure to first send a query letter to state who you are, why you are qualified to write, what your basic premise is and to kindly ask whether they are accepting new clients.

It is my hope that this helps launch your career, and I hope to see you and your work soon. Please use the comments field to ask any questions or make comments. Thank you.

LITERARY AGENT LIST

These are agents that focus on representing Christian authors and organizations. I also work with many entertainment and general market agents but this list is focused on Christian representation.

NOTE TO AGENTS: If you are one of the agents listed below and prefer a different contact address or to be removed entirely, please let me know by email. If you are an agent and are not listed below and would like to be added, please let me know by email.

  1. I love this list…unfortunately Cleveland or anywhere near it is not a hotspot for agents.In your opinion is the west coast or east coast a better choice for a new writer?

    • I don’t know that left versus right coast makes as much difference is just finding someone with a good fit for your content. I would look at client lists and focus on the agents that represent authors that most align to your type of work. Godspeed!
