Mission Statement

Agent Query offers writers a literary touchstone. We want every writer posing as an accountant, office manager, bus driver, police officer, housewife, flight attendant, or juvenile delinquent to know that their story has a chance to be something more than a shameful, indulgent escape— pages hidden in desk drawers that only see the light of day in whimsical dreams of publication.

Publication is not a dream. Extraordinary stories written by ordinary people are sold every day to major publishing houses. Literary agents make these sales a reality.

For this reason, Agent Query offers the largest, most current searchable database of literary agents on the web—a treasure trove of reputable, established literary agents seeking writers just like you. And it's free (not because there's a catch, but simply because not enough things in this world are free).

We know that searching for the right literary agent takes hours of research and cross-checking, so leave the trolling to us. You go write and rewrite until your heart bursts, your hands bleed, and you've exhausted yourself with your own literary brilliance. Then, only then, will the publishing world be ready for you.
