Publish date:

Every year, Writers Digest asks me to assemble a short list of agents who are actively seeking new work from writers. (I call it "The List.") Well, The List came out in the Oct. 2009 issue of Writer's Digest. But it is now online for all to see. It's a
special grouping of literary agents who’ve confirmed they’re open to
reviewing queries from new and established authors alike. This means
your work is going to get read and considered. And rest assured there’s
an agent on this list for you, no matter what you’re writing.
