    The Jonathan Dolger Agency

    Does anyone have information or experience in working with Jonathan Dolger? All I could find was the agent query page (http://www.agentquery.com/agent.aspx?agentid=182) which seemed like it hadn't been updated in a while based on the sales listed.

    Thanks!!

    From the 2009 Guide to Literary Agents:

    Agency was established in 1980 and is a member of AAR

    Considers these nonfiction areas: biography/autobiography; history; women's issues/studies; cultural/social.

    Considers these fiction areas: women's; commercial

    Tips: "Writers must have been previously published if submitting fiction. We prefer to work with published/established authors, and work with a small number of new/previously unpublished writers."

    Query with SASE (no e-mail queries)

    Publishers Marketplace notes a couple "very nice" deals for him in 2007, but I'm not finding anything more recent.

    Just to point out: agencies can't be members of AAR. Only individual agents can be.

    Just checked QT, and 1000lit (http://www.1000literaryagents.com/li...nt.php?id=1319). Only snail mail queries allowed. :-P Will agents ever go green?

    so given this advertisement he has made of being an agency AND an AAR member, is that reason for concern?

    I was thinking about querying him, but haven't found much on him
    I blog here

    My rusty ol' website is here
