New Agent Alerts of 2012

Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents blog has been wonderful about introducing new agents to the writing community.


If you're anything like me, you might have days/weeks where you don't have quite enough time to browse all of the writing blogs/articles you'd like to. I thought I'd post a link to each of the alerts listed in 2012, in case you're looking for your agent match.


For your convenience, I've put "*" next to agents who accept Young Adult manuscripts and "**" next to those who also take Middle Grade manuscripts. Otherwise, assume that the agent handles adult fiction and non-fiction (keeping in mind that tastes can change, and that they may open to other age groups/genres at some point in their careers).


At the bottom, there's a link that includes information from other years as well.

  10. I highly recommend subscribing to Chuck's Guide to Lit.Agents--I've followed his site for a long time,and have an ongoing file to draw from in my querying journey. The fact, tho, that you've put everything in such a concise list is fantastic. Thanks, Jess. At the same time, your own "querylicious" sidebar is a gem in itself, you know... :-)

  11. Querytracker sends out automatic alerts of new agents/publishers via email. Their regular membership is free but I highly recommend a premium. It was so important while I was querying.

    1. Great~ thanks for stopping by! I agree on the "so much to read" bit...it can get overwhelming, for sure. And to think, we're supposed to be actually writing on top of reading blogs :) So little time...

  13. This is so helpful, Jess! I'm going to tweet this because we were just talking about new agents today on Twitter! Funny how that works. You have such a great blog - so helpful!
