Anna L. Walls, I've discovered a great writer's group. It's called AgentQuery.com, and whether you write fiction or non-fiction, online or in print, there's something for everyone. The site has been recognized as one of Writer's Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers six years in a row.
I like it best because it's free.
Why should you consider joining AgentQuery? Let me count the ways.
Agents. Literary agents are encouraged to create their own profile. Consider the site one-stop shopping for agents. Often in the forums, if the subject turns to a particular agent, the agent will chime in on the discussion.
Browse the searchable database of agents to find the individuals who may be interested in your work. Subscribe to Agent Updates to keep track of new agents, and agents who open or close submissions.
Writers. Learn about finding the agent who fits what you write. How to submit to an agent, including the specifics of writing a query. What to do if an agent makes an offer, and how to recognize a scammer.
Network. AgentQuery's AQ Connect is a social networking site for writers. The forum has a unique visual way to show writers who have similar interests to yours, making it easier to connect.
Publishing. AgentQuery provides information on all aspects of publishing, from major publishers to small presses, from literary journals to ezines.
Resources. In addition to all the other content on the site, you'll find links to websites for writers, lists of contests and conferences, literary organizations, and grants for writers.
AgentQuery is touted as a writer's "one-stop shop" for information. Check it out for yourself.
