Querying

This is not meant to replace any other sites. Literary Rambles is a fantastic resource (and likely contains many interviews from Mother. Write. Repeat., which is one as well), and this is only meant to be a supplement with newer interviews, because I have a number of friends who do agent interviews and therefore am generally on top of when new ones come out. Please pay attention to the dates of the original posts; wishlists and preferences are always subject to change, but this list is for relatively recent interviews, i.e. 2013 on or so.

Please note that this is not all-inclusive, nor is it intended to be. It’s a work-in-progress, for one thing, and for another, I do not endorse everyone who calls him or herself an agent. So, onward!
