Introducing AGENT HUNTER

It gives all of us here at WW great delight to finally reveal to you a significant new project which we have been developing for some time; our new website

It struck us that there was no modern, interactive and comprehensive online resource for writers seeking representation – so we created one. There is nothing like Agent Hunter in the world and it is, quite simply, the best course of action you can take when you feel you have a manuscript which is ready to be viewed commercially.

Previously the only resource available to writers has been a published directory of agencies which gives scant and general details. Agent Hunter allows you to not only search the agencies but search the agents themselves. We’ve been working direct with the agents – as it’s in their interests that you find them too – who have supplied us with copious amounts of in-depth information as to who they are and what they’re looking for.

When you first log on to Agent Hunter, you can immediately and simply whittle our entire database of every UK agent down to the few who will be best suited to you by inputting search information that pertains to the genre and audience your work is intended for. Once you have that list, you can start to scrutinize the information those agents have provided – their likes and dislikes, their availability to meet, how to submit to them, you can even find online articles and interviews they have participated in along with contact information and their Twitter handles.

You’ll also find a wealth of advice on the site to guide you through the whole process of seeking representation – all of the things you will need to consider before you start, exactly how to go about doing it and what you might expect.

We’ve been able to create this resource because of our unique position within the publishing industry. We have warm, longstanding relationships with agents, who consider our Festival of Writing as a key date in their calendar, and we also understand the needs and demands of aspiring authors as we’ve been working intensively with them every day since 2005.

For us, Agent Hunter is the last piece of the jigsaw which, along with The Writers’ Workshop and Festival of Writing, creates the one-stop resource to turn aspiring writers into published authors.

We hope you love it as much as we do – check it out!

    I need a literary agent. I hope this website will help me.

  • Richard S. Walmsley

    One author in search of six literary agents – at least.

  • I sent my manuscript to a manuscript company. They really liked it ~said it had great voice, suggested some amendments, which I have obviously done and they then advised that I now find not just an agent, but the Right Agent! I was given the link to your site by Katrina Mountfort, a published author, so here I am looking to do the best I can with what I have.
    Any pointers in finding the right person will be muchly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Paul – the answers you need are right here:

    Best of luck. (And say hi to Katrina for us!)

  • I have read “How to get a Literary Agent” and would like to sign up to “Agent Hunters”

  • I need help with my sequel. My first novel ‘Paradise lost’ by Mollie Bach was published in November. It has sold quite well on Amazon: most of the reviews gave me four five stars which you can establish easily for yourselves, by looking it up on the site.
    However, despite the fact that I have been asked when the sequel is coming out I cannot afford to self publish again. I would be happy to send you “Paradise Lost’ to you in book format through the post and then you could see my work for yourself and decide if we could work together or not.

    Dear Sirs:

    I am looking for free advice. Can you help me find an appropriate Literary Agent for a new book on Political Science/History.
