The 2012 Guide to Literary Agents
I know my readers are savvy web surfers, and you’re reading blogs and websites to learn about agents and publishing. But I cannot overstate the value of having this print resource on hand!
The 2012 Guide to Literary Agents is now available—and it’s less than twenty bucks. I think it’s an incredible value. Here’s what you’ll find inside:
- Contact info and submission guidelines for hundreds of legitimate literary agencies.
- Info on over 100 writers’ conferences around the country.
- Complete glossary of publishing industry terms.
- Over 40 articles written by top literary agents, addressing researching agents, writing queries, attending conferences, and much more.
Of course you won’t want to miss my article on Non-fiction Book Proposals! (You’ll find it on p. 56)
The Guide to Literary Agents is put together and constantly updated by Chuck Sambuchino, who also maintains the Guide to Literary Agents Blog on the Writers Digest site. Bookmark it for all the latest agent-related news!
In addition to your favorite websites and blogs, what PRINT resources do you keep on hand for navigating through publishing, finding an agent, proposal writing, etc?
Disclaimer: Yes, I received a free copy of this book. Yes, I wrote an article for it. And yes, my name is (gulp) on the cover. However… the reason I involve myself with the Guide to Literary Agents is because I believe in it – I think it’s a terrific resource! So my recommendation is in no way purchased or coerced.
