Literary Agency Directory

What does a literary agent do? The agent represents an author to major publishers and sometimes to smaller publishing houses and university presses for the sale of the author’s fiction or nonfiction book. The agent usually earns a flat 15-20% fee for any income the author receives from the sale. Having an agent is highly desirable if you seek to publish with a major house. A good agent studies the industry and knows how to target your material to editors who may have an interest in buying. While there are many agency directories on the Internet, it’s tough to separate the effective ones from the not-so-effective. Our list of agents has been carefully vetted for professionalism. Though we can’t guarantee a positive experience for every author, you can be sure the agents listed here have a solid track record in the industry.
