LitMatch: Research Literary Agents and Track Submissions

One Year Later...

Last September, LitMatch made its way onto the Internet with very little fanfare and a simple goal: to help writers in their search for representation and, ultimately, publication. We've had a few bumps along the way, but as I sit here, one year later, and look back at what we have accomplished in that short time, I am filled with pride and no small amount of awe.

When I say "we", I'm not just talking about myself and the others who helped design and build LitMatch. By "we" I mean each and every person who has reported a submission, sent us a tip about an agent or agency, suggested ways to improve the site, posted a blog or forum message to help spread the word, emailed us with a kind word, or even just used the site for research. Without our users and supporters, we are nothing, and the success we've found is because of each and every one of you.

So, here's to the first of what I hope will be many, many years of helping writers connect with agents, and many, many years of saying to you, all of you:

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Christopher Hawkins

It's nice to see that if you do something good and have good intentions, it comes back to you a thousandfold. Congratulations on making it for a whole year. Litmatch is a first rate resource for writers. Here's to many more years and continued success.
