1000 Literary Agents
Find a literary agent Corresponding with literary agents to find the right literary agent to represent your work takes a lot of time. You want a literary agent to handle the business of writing, but paradoxically, looking for an agent puts you into the business of writing, which steals time from your work and wears on the creative side of your brain.
Make finding a literary agent easier What you need most is organization. You need organized lists of literary agencies and agents. Then you need to organize a set of documents to send to the agents—because the type of query they want varies from agency to agency. And once you start sending your queries, you need to organize records of your submissions and other correspondence. Otherwise, you will lose track of your contacts, waste time on unresponsive agents, query another agent in the same agency and quash your chances, or waste months of time in other ways.
