    Welp, I'm getting to it horribly late this year, but I'll be culling Agents over the next week or so. Lay in your zombie apocalypse supplies while you still can.

    Yanno, I started compiling this Index ten years ago yesterday.

    It now lists 1,160+ agents (468 inactive), 2,190+ publishers (708 inactive), and 800+ others (251 inactive).

    And it is, without doubt, the single most valuable of all the valuable assets of AW. I can't tell you the number of times it's kept me from making stupid mistakes.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your hard work.

    Heads-up that I'll be starting the Publisher cull this weekend. Gird your loins appropriately.

    At the risk of being redundant, I'm just going to quote what I said last year.

    Thank you for your continuing hard work, CaoPaux!

    Well, that was a slog 'n' a half ... 2341 publishers, 953 inactive. (And, as traditional to add: 1192 agents, 469 inactive.)

    Found some positively mortifying typos (and introduced others, I'm sure). Please don't hesitate to ping me should you find one. 'Specially those which affect alphabetization.

    Also, a reminder re: searching -- the easiest way is Find On Page, which is Ctrl-F for PC folks, and Command+F for Mac.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

    Wow - nearly half have gone inactive? That's a sobering reality.

    The typos were introduced by the software, I'm sure. And what an incredible amount of work—thanks so very much.

    Has anyone heard of this agency? They say they represent screenwriters. I couldn't find them on this forum. They aren't on Predators & Editors, either. Thanks.

    Which agency?
    I still poop rainbows.




    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    question about the Index to Agents/Publishers/Others thread

    is there any way to know without clickin on each link to read all the separate threads about them....just to find out if they are good or bad?

    like...a cliff notes list of all the ones that are worth sending to?
    i'm just looking at the agents list.....

    There is no such list, because a good agent for one person is going to be a bad agent for someone else.

    Don't create your submission list based on the index list here: use it to check the list once you've put it together.

    What Old Hack said. It's safer for every author to do their own research, because they know their books and writing situation best. If you're looking for a short cut - chances are you may not be as ready to publish as you think. Keep in mind that 'just' the agent research and querying process can often take several hundred tries and a few years, if it's successful at all. This is not usually a fast stage.

    About now you might be tempted to say 'screw this' and just self-publish, which has perils of its own for the unwary.

    Dittoing Old Hack and Filigree--researching agents is not a step to look for a short-cut on. Have you made a list of that you're looking for in an agent yet--things like communication style, whether they're editorial or hands-off, etc.? That will help as you do your research.

    But really, this is not something you should rush through.

    ETA: Do your initial research on sites like Querytracker and Agentquery and Manuscript Wish List to find agents who rep your genre/subgenre. Then you can use this site to refine your list.
