The list that started it all...

Friday, March 21, 2008
A Gift for You Writers!
It took me a couple of hours, but I have put together a list of children's literature agents. All my information came from Agent Query. This is for Wishcraft, but I thought it would be nice to share. What I have done is put only children's literature agents who are currently accepting queries into a table in Word. There were 160 entries, but a lot of them were not accepting unsolicited material, yada yada yada. I sorted through those and the ones that Agent Query needed more information on. The result is a list of ligitimate agents who represent children's authors and are actively seeking queries at this time. Another great thing about this list is that I combined agents that are from the same agency. As you know, it would be a terrible thing to accidently query 2 agents from the same company at the same time. Talk about blacklisted at that agency. With my list, you won't make this mistake. If the agent has an email address, that means they accept email queries. The Word table did not paste into this blog, so below is the list of agents with their addresses and email. Here's what you do: copy and paste the list into Word and then create a table with 4 columns out beside it. The 4 columns should be labeled: work queried, date sent, date response received, and response. When you send out multiple queries on multiple works, this chart will help you keep it all organized. Enjoy and let me know if I made a duplicate entry. I copied and pasted the information straight from Agent Query, so it all should be spelled correctly, but I would always check the agent's site first. Plus, you will need to check their site to see exactly what to submit anyway. Now get busy doing something for your career!

Fantastic! Thank you for all your time an effort, and for sharing your hard work!

Thanks so much! This must have been labor intensive! But some of the info needs updating... for example, Michelle Andelman isn't with Andrea Brown anymore, and Elana Roth left Firebrand and is joining a new agency.
