After editing your query letter to the best it can be, it’s time to find literary agents. Here are some tips on how to find some:
Find books that are similar to yours, and go to the acknowledgments section. Writers thank their literary agent there most of the time, especially if the agent is good.
QueryTracker, AgentQuery, AND MANUSCRIPT WISHLIST
QueryTracker, AgentQuery, and Manuscript Wishlist are websites that help writers find agents to represent them. Depending on the website, you can see what genres they represent, what books they’ve worked on before, and what they’re looking for.

Literary agencies—companies literary agents work for—will list their agents and submission requirements online. Here are some:
- Andrea Brown Literary Agency
- Curtis Brown, Ltd
- David Black Agency
