We created Agent Query as the only one-stop writer’s resource on the web about literary agents and publishing. Agent Query was founded by a group of writers, web designers, and computer programmers who realized there was no single online resource to help writers find literary agents, much less learn the basics about getting published. So the AQ crew decided it was time to fill the void and create one single website—a literary touchstone—to help writers navigate through the arcane world of book publishing. Other online resources offer truncated glimpses of the publishing process. And those “familiar” print guides are out-of-date by the time they hit the bookshelves. So the AQ crew decided to take action—and Agent Query was born.
