1. Check that the agent is open to submissions. Some agents periodically close their submissions and will delete any submissions unread during that time.

2. Do your research. While many agents have detailed manuscript wishlists on their agency website, others might be less specific. Looking at the agent’s client list can be a good way of gauging their interests, preferences, and any gaps in their list that you might just be the author to fill…
