Publishers and Agents

 

While self-publishing is becoming increasingly popular, traditional publishing is still the goal for most writers. There's nothing more exciting than seeing your work for sale in a major book store. Here are some links to traditional publishers and to author agents. We're including many small independent publishers as they are generally more open to independent authors and un-agented work.

    Agents

  • Duotrope - this site acts a bit like a literary agent. For US$5 a month you can have them submit your work to various publishers and track your submissions.
  • Writers Relief - this website will review your work and help submit it to an agent or publisher.

      Publishers

  • Association of Canadian Publishers - this site has lots of listings of Canadian publishers, literary agents and much more.
  • Graywolf Press - a leading independent publisher whose mission is to discover and promote new talent. Their success is best noted by the fact that they have discovered authors who went on to win a National Book Award, two Pulitzers and a Nobel Prize in Literature.
  • The Grinder - this website is a market database and also helps you track your submissions.
  • Magazines Canada - this site has information on over 300 Canadian magazine publishers. It is geared more towards the magazine publishing industry than to writers but you may find it useful.
  • Ralan.com - this is an extensive website listing markets for your writing, much like the annual Writer's Market books that are published each year. Except this is online. When you click on a specific link, say Pro, SemiPro, Pay, Token etc., recent updates are listed at the top. A fabulous website.
  • Writers Market - the company that publishes those annual compendiums. $5.99 a month to access it online.
