Preditors and Editors
A guide to publishers and publishing services for serious writers since 1997.
Agent Listings - V
Suggested Etiquette for Contacting Agents:
- Do not send attached files containing manuscripts to agents unless the agent's guidelines expressly state that those are acceptable within initial correspondence.
- Email messages should be kept to a length of one or two pages unless explicitly invited to send a manuscript or sample chapters.
- Authors should advise an agent where the agent was found listed. This helps them offer updates to any incorrect listings.
- Do not send synopses to screenplay
agents or movie production companies.
Some listings offer legal services only:
- Do not send queries or submissions to legal services unless the agency specifically states it handles both literary and legal representation.
For uniformity, P&E lists agents by first name just like businesses because businesses don't have last names.
$ - Indicates verified sales to legitimate royalty-paying publishers on record.
$ - Indicates verified negotiation by an agency when the sale was made by the author.
AAR, RWA - Indicates individual membership in organization or recognition. Lost membership or recognition is lined out.
