Create an Agent Profile

I’m not in your Agent Query database. How can I list my profile?

If you are a legitimate, non-fee charging reputable literary agent working in the United States (or directly selling to major US publishers), and you’d like to be included in our Agent Query database, please download and fill out our Create an Agent Profile form and follow our submission guidelines.

Does it cost anything to have my profile listed?

No. Agents do not pay us to be listed in our AQ database, and we do not pay agents to participate.

Do you only list literary agents working in the U.S.?

Technically, yes. A few of the agents in our AQ database are physically based in other countries, but they either maintain U.S. offices or directly sell their clients' books to major U.S. publishers.

I’m a small boutique agency not located in New York City. Are you interested in including me in your database?

We are interested in listing all reputable agents who earn a living through selling and managing the rights of their clients’ books rather than charging up-front fees for manuscript evaluation, book doctor services, or one-time representation costs.

And while we may give pause to single-agent boutiques located in Nowhere, Iowa, we are happy to list you in our database if you can provide a verifiable track record of book sales to major or independent publishers.

I’m just starting out and I have no sales record. Will you list my profile to help me garner new clients?

If you are new to this business and you want us to list your profile, you must be affiliated with an established reputable agency or have previous publishing experience such as former employment as an editor, publicity director, agent’s assistant, etc. We welcome all fresh, hungry literary agents looking for new talent, but only if they pass our smell test. And our noses can be fickle.
