Hiya writers! Thanks so much for your interest in our literary agents database.
We’re currently in the process of updating all the entries. One of the best features of the new database that we’re most excited about is that each agent will have a separate page with links to recent articles written about them or their work.
This ensures that their background, the books they’ve sold, the authors they’ve worked with, the things they’ve said in the media, and any disputes they’ve gotten into is information that’s readily available to you.
While we get the database up and ready, we have lists of both UK and US agents (1,500+ agents) that we’ve put together.
A few things to note:
- These lists are organized by agency for ease of use. Generally, it is advised to only pitch one agent in the agency at a time.
- PublishersMarketplace.com is a paid resource. It is fantastic for looking into previous agent sales and the editors and publishers they sell to, and for how much. However, since it is a US resource, not all agents outside of the US keep their profiles updated. Please keep this in mind. A lackluster profile on Publishers Marketplace does not reflect on an international agent’s sales or abilities.
- This list is meant to be a starting point, a resource to simplify and organize all the information in one place. It is still an excellent idea to research each agent individually through the links provided and more thoroughly if you’re planning to pitch (or sign with) them.
Happy hunting, and I wish you all the luck in the world for your search. May you find the perfect fit!
