What does a literary agent do?
Here’s some basic information about what a literary agent is:

To find agents in the USA and UK and around the world. I used Query Tracker. A searchable data base of all reputable agents and the types of books they represent and are looking for

The BEST information on the web for finding out how to write a query letter (yes, these things are hard to write, and yes you really do have to learn how to write one if you want an agent) is Query Shark by literary agent Janet Reid
The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment: by Matthew Rush: Simply one of the best sites out there for examples of query letters that have sold and query critiques.

Here’s the big one for Australian writers
