This week I'm going to share a handy resource for those of us looking for agents or publishers. This tool could really help narrow down candidates for query letters.
You can search the site by agents, publishers, editors, and by subject. When you find a match that interests you, you can easily follow a link to their Twitter account and begin researching your pitch or query.

What I liked most:
- List Searches: You can search for agents, editors and publishers, or you can search by genre or even key word.
- Live Twitter Sidebar: There's a live listing of #MSWL in the sidebar, keeping you updated on what agents and publishers are on the lookout for.
- Active Agents and Publishers: Professionals on the lookout for manuscripts can get profiles on the site and update them with new listings, making it even easier to target those queries.
