BIPOC literary agents & agents seeking BIPOC authors

A current list of individual BIPOC literary agents and literary agents/agencies actively seeking projects by BIPOC authors.


I created this list to help writers looking for BIPOC literary agents or agents who state in their respective submission guidelines that they would like to see more book proposals and manuscript submissions from traditionally under-represented writers.

While it’s difficult enough to craft a persuasive book proposal, finding an agent who understands your professional goals and who can help you navigate the invisible walls of traditional publishing is essential.

If you’re preparing to make a submission to a literary agent and wondering about the quality of your materials, check out my query letter and book proposal editing services. Or why not schedule a brief no-obligation call to discuss your publishing goals and how I can help you reach them?

Either way I hope you find the list below useful and I’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions. Good luck!
