One of the most common requests we receive is to cover literary agents as well as publications. We've spent the past few months developing this new area. Because this is a new feature, you can expect many changes and improvements in the future.


We have started the process of adding listings for reputable literary agents. At launch on 14 February 2018, we began with 102 literary agents. Currently, we list 1855 reputable literary agents.

Once we are ready to start adding specific Literary Agents on request, we'll let you know. In the meantime, we ask for your patience as we work through our initial lists.
Update: As of June 5th, we are now accepting requests to add specific agents.

Current Restrictions

As with our publisher listings, we do not cover agents for screenwriting/playwriting, illustrated books for children, graphic novels, or translations. However, those are areas we hope to explore in the future. (If you have a particular interest in any of those areas, please let us know.)

Current Features

We will be keeping our Literary Agent listings generally separate from our Publisher listings. Here are some of the new features for our new Literary Agent listings:

* These will become available as we get enough submission reports from our members.

In addition to those new features, we've also updated these existing features to include literary agents: newsletter, Find by Title search, and Index of Listings.

Upcoming Feature

We will be providing an Agent Interview feature that's similar to our Editor Interviews. These will start appearing in July/August.
