About

Founder and owner Farley Chase has worked in publishing for 25 years. He became a literary agent in 2002 and founded Chase Literary Agency in 2012. He has had has magazine experience at both The New Yorker and Talk Magazine. And he's worked at The New Press and later became an editor at Talk Miramax Books. He lives in NYC with his wife and dog and is a graduate of Macalester College. He is on the Board of the Association of American Literary Agents as well as Literary Agents of Change. "I love working with authors to develop their stories at whatever stage in their career. I take a deliberate, editorial-minded, and collaborative approach to projects across genres. I'd rather my authors start a trend than follow one. If you have a platform let's use it. If you don't have a platform let's not worry about it. I'm excited by original ideas, strong and unique points of view, detailed research, personal expertise, and passion for subjects that give readers fresh perspectives on things they think they know.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the agent or agency being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the agent/agency meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the agency/agent.
  • Unless the agency's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For agency submissions, it is standard to submit a query letter and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the agent replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
