Agency Directory

In case you missed the new page I created to list literary agencies, I thought I would send out a post. My “go to” used to be Preditors and Editors, but it has been in “dust” mode for a long time. And with Pitch Wars ceasing, I’m not sure how long their site will be running. While there is Manuscript Wishlist, AALA, AAA(UK), and Query Tracker, and possibly others I’m unaware of, they aren’t a complete list, or they miss agencies on some that are on others. So, I decided to make a list from all of them. It is still a work in progress and will be everchanging as agencies open and close.

When I started this, I found it very time consuming. But, at some point, I will go back and improve the listings by adding the age categories and genres each one represents. To search red flags for agencies, I recommend Absolute Write. But for now, enjoy the agency directory I created.

You need to have a completed and polished PB manuscript and illustrations are encouraged to be submitted (if you’re an illustrator).
