Landing an Agent (Canadian Literary Agents)

Filed under: Agents — petertypingfaster @ 8:30 am

As promised, here’s a list of Canadian literary agents.

These are all WGC signatory agencies.
I have indicated where possible whether they (don’t) accept unsolicited material. If I haven’t marked it down definitively one way or the other it’s because the information is unavailable.
I have included contact information whenever possible.
For more information on all of these agencies (ie. client roster, etc), check them out on IMDBPro (they have free 14-day trials).

Please note that these are FILM and TELEVISION literary agents. Most, if not all, do not handle Publishing.

Without further ado, the agencies!

    • Yeah, I need to do that. As soon as I figure out a way to do it in a somewhat fair way I will 😉

  4. Angela which is listed in Catalyst is no longer there. Her email, and addy are not available. She is now in another site called The Associates Talent, Literary Agency to which I sent a query letter to with no failure return on my email. Just thought I’d give you heads up.
