Literary agents for popular science

Popular science and psychology authors are more popular than ever. Stephen Hawking, Oliver Sacks and Michio Kaku, to name a few.

For all that the ebook revolution has upturned the old verities of the publishing market, it remains the case that for countless areas of the books trade, traditional publishers still dominate. What’s more, with very few exceptions, the only sensible route to those publishers is via literary agents. The helmsmen and pilots of your literary career.

And yes, AgentMatch is here for creative non-fiction writers, too.

AgentMatch and how to use it

On AgentMatch, there are plenty of science-loving agents, but you won’t want to approach them all. The best way to develop and refine your own shortlist of likely targets is to visit our page and use the search tools on the left to make your selection.

You can select by genre (e.g. popular science, non-fiction) but you can also select by the agent’s level of experience, their appetite for new clients, and very much more. Our database is completely comprehensive and it’s really, really easy to create the searches you want.

The site is designed to give users a good feel for the data and functionality for free, but the real riches of our site are available only to members.
