Remember that in the UK literary agents both manage a writer’s career and negotiate contracts for them. In the US this role is divided into two distinct roles of Manager (who manages your career) and Agent (who does the deals). So in the US, it’s advisable for new writers to look first for a Manager, rather than Agent.
The literary agencies we’ve listed aren’t necessarily recommendations so, as always, please be sure to do your own research before submitting your work to anyone. Submission policies vary among the agencies, with some more open to approaches than others, so please check out their websites for further information about how to submit to them.
