US Literary Agents For Fantasy Fiction

Have you just finished your novel and are ready to begin your search for an agent? Well, we’re here to help! 


Fantasy Fiction

The fantasy fiction market has been incredibly successful over the years, and publishers have made a lot of money from it. As have the film and television industries. 

The flexibility of this genre means that authors are able to explore the many facets of not only their characters but also the world they’ve built for their readers. 

There have been some excellent authors who have written in the genre, China Mieville, Neil Gaiman, and Iain Banks to name a few.  This means that there are plenty of agents looking for the next big thing in fantasy to come their way.  

To make sure your fantasy novel stands out from the slushpile try reading this article on world-building. You’ll also find this piece by published author Geraldine Pinch on how to write a fantasy novel useful, too.  

AgentMatch And How To Use It

There are plenty of fantasy-loving agents, but you won’t want to approach them all. The best way to develop and refine your own shortlist of US agents for fantasy novels is to visit AgentMatch, our literary agent database, and use the search tools on the left to make your selection. 

With AgentMatch you can select by genre (e.g. fantasy), country, the agent’s level of experience, their appetite for new clients, and much more. You can even save your search results and come back to them, allowing you to work through them one by one, at your own pace. Each profile has been researched thoroughly including what agents like to read in their spare time, information on their most recent deals, manuscript wishlists, submission requirements, and exclusive interviews.
