I recently stumbled across a website and I liked it so much I thought I would share. Jane Friedman has a wealth of information for the writer/author looking to publish, wonderful inspirational posts, and writing craft techniques. There is also a post that has a free market listing where you can find publishers and agents at no charge. Below are just some of the listings. Go to her site to see a full listing.
Free Listing For Book Publishers
Be aware that most New York publishers do not accept unagented submissions, so sometimes “searching for a publisher” really means “finding an agent” (see next list).
- Duotrope.com. For fiction and poetry only. About 3,500 listings total, which includes many types of publications.
- QueryTracker.net. About 130 listings.
- Preditors & Editors. Hundreds of listings; been going since 1997. Waves a red flag on publishers to avoid. However, unclear how often the information is updated.
- Ralan.com. About 100 listings, focused on SF/F.
- AgentQuery.com. Bare-bones list (no submission guidelines), but offers embedded links to publishers’ sites. Useful to preview the landscape.
- WriterMag.com. If you subscribe to The Writer magazine, you get 3,000 online market listings for free. Vetted list.
- Poets & Writers. Hundreds of listings, serving primarily the more literary side of the writing community.
Free Listing of Agents
- AgentQuery.com. About 900 listings.
- QueryTracker.net. More than 1,200 listings.
- Preditors & Editors. Hundreds of listings; been going since 1997. Waves a red flag on agents to avoid. However, unclear how often the information is updated.
- AAR Online. This is the official membership organization for literary agents. Not all agents are member of AAR.
