Literary Agent Directories

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a writer in possession of an unpublished manuscript, must be in want of an agent.” - Victoria Strauss

I’ve gotten a few questions about directories of literary agents. Check out Victoria Strauss’ blog post on the topic. She’s done an excellent job of detailing the myriad resources.

Best of luck. Persistence is key.
