LitMatch: Research Literary Agents and Track Submissions

Thursday, September 6, 2007


It's been a while since I've posted, and now I can finally (and quite proudly, I might add) reveal what's been keeping me away: This week marked the launch of my new website,!

LitMatch is a free online resource for finding and researching literary agents. And yet, it is much more than that. It's also a sophisticated submission tracking system that lets writers record and manage their queries online.
Here are just some of LitMatch's features:

A robust, up-to-date database, featuring over 1600 literary agents and their respective agencies.
A matching search that lets writers quickly find the agents who will be most receptive to their work.
Comment functions that allow users to share their experiences with specific agents with other users, and record private notes for reference purposes.
Hotlist functionality that allows users to bookmark agents and agencies for future reference.
Full-text and targeted searches that let users quickly find agents by the authors they represent, the genres they're interested in, their professional history and more.
An intuitive, easy-to-use interface.
LitMatch has been a real labor of love for me, and represents nearly a year of research and development. So, I hope you'll check it out and spread the word. And after you check it out, drop me a note and let me know what you think!
