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.

1000LiteraryAgents.com can help  Here you will find help for your dealings with literary agents.  There are two levels of help:

Basic Guide to Literary Agents

It does not cost anything to view the guides to agents.  You can browse through the lists of agents and agencies or you can find literary agents using an advanced search.

Standard Membership  To see all the information in the guides, you need to register for the free standard membership.  Your sign-up information is absolutely confidential.  You will not be bombarded with emails from 1000LiteraryAgents.com.  The chief reason you must register before seeing the agents' email addresses and web addresses is to protect the agents from spam, which hurts the chances of serious writers to get an agent's attention.
