Literary Agents Who Represent Christian Authors

Aspiring authors routinely ask me to recommend an agent. This is more difficult than you might think. For starters, we work with numerous agents and enjoy good relationships with all of them.

Second, it’s often just as difficult to find an agent as a publisher. Many agents are not accepting clients. However, if your project is good and you are persistent, you will eventually find one.

Rather than recommend a specific agent, I hoped to be able to point authors to a list of agents on the Internet. However, I couldn’t find a list that represent Christian authors. Bummer. So, with the help of Vicki, my assistant, I compiled one.

This may not be all the agents that could be listed, but these are the forty or so we work with at Thomas Nelson. While all of them represent Christian authors, they themselves may not necessarily be Christians or represent exclusively Christian authors. If you want to check out an agent or get the opinions of other writers, you might visit ChristianWriters.com or The Absolute Writer Water Cooler, two discussion forums for authors.

Also, please note: before you approach any agent, you should prepare a formal proposal. I provide explicit guidance in my two e-books, one for fiction and one for non-fiction. These will enable you to put your best foot forward and answer the questions that most agents ask.

Regardless, this list does not constitute my recommendation. It is your responsibility to check references and ascertain whether or not a specific agent is right for you.

Keep in mind that agents typically charge a 15 percent commission. This is standard in the industry. However, you shouldn’t have to pay them until they actually sell your book to a publisher.

    Brandilyn ~ This is very enlightening. I’ve never heard of many of the agents. I will be excited to check out their websites. Thank you for such valuable information.

      Can you list separately Christian literary agents who specialized in children’s stories? I think the list of some of your Christian literary agents don’t handle children’s books.

    Mike, what a great list, as an aspiring author I have more success contacting and engaging Publishing Editor’s than I do Agents. I have Editor’s who suggest one or two good Agents, but the Agents won’t accept unsolicited works. It seems sometimes like I need to hire an Agent to represent my books to an Agent. I look forward to working through your list. Thanks!

    Don’t even think about contacting an agent if you haven’t developed a quality proposal. There are excellent books by Michael Larsen, Peter Miller, Jeff Herman and others, and also read Michael’s article at http://www.thomasnelson.com/consumer/Downloads/WritingABookProposal.pdf .

    Mike,
    This is a great list, and I know at least one person I’ll be telling about it.

    One addition you might want to make: Etta Wilson. Doing acquisitions I worked with Etta before she became my agent. After quietly and faithfully running her own agency for many years, she recently joined hands with Books and Such. Etta represents children’s writers, primarily, to both Christian and general-market publishers. She’s smart, all class, and a humble servant. I hope she finds a place on your list.

    As a debut novelist, I queried a few agents, some on this list. I realized right away that I wouldn’t be getting anywhere anytime soon by doing this. I had more luck soliciting small publishers directly. I did so with a professionally edited MS and a professional Query/Synopsis and with God on my side. Worked out well too. I’d not recommend using an agent to anyone who has a debut novel though but that doesn’t mean I don’t think your list is a good idea. However, there are several out there. I got my first publisher from Writers Market.com and they were Christian. Writers Market had an entire section of Christian publishers. I’m really not sure why you couldn’t find a list. Writers Market even has a list of Christian agents. Sally Stuart has a book out with Christian publishers and agents but it has at least one flaw already. It list a certain vanity publisher as traditional. No big deal I guess. You can’t catch them all. But Writers Market does a fine job of it as does Absolute Write.com. Also Absolute Write.com is an excellent source for many things, as you stated. Bad/Good publishers, Bad/Good agents.

    Just my two-cents,

      thank you for your post, it is extremely important for me to find a christian ghostwriter, agent, etc. I am seeking daily for the direction through the holy spirit, as I have a message that must be shared with the world.

      Many Thanks

    It’s been some time since I looked at any of these lists but the one that was most helpful to me was, again, writersmarket.com They have all publishers and agents listed and seperated by market, sub-market, genre, sub-genre, those accepting MS’s, queries, synopsis etc. Agents are listed the same way. However, I think there may be a small fee to join but it is a very small fee. In fact, at the time, all I had to do was buy a copy of Writers’ Market magazine to get a free one-year subscription. Lucky me, I didn’t need it past the one year! :)

    Don’t know why you’d kick yourself about your list though. Hey, it’s free AND informative!

    As a debut author with Thomas Nelson, I was delighted to see my agent, Mary Beth Chappell of Zachary Shuster Harmsworth Literary/Entertainment Agency, on your list. I couldn’t imagine negotiating these contractual waters without her, much less even receiving an offer in the first place. I can’t help but think this list will be incredibly helpful to aspiring Christian authors. Thank you for posting it.

    Mike,
    Thank you for the agent’s list. This list helps me mine the agent that may represent me. One agent is now looking at my proposal.

    I am reading more books now, about three a month. The books I am reading help me chisel and polish my manuscript. Three patterns I see that makes a book effective and transforming book are: 1) it speaks from the heart and has heart warming stories, 2) it is not squimish about presenting the truth, 3) it points to Christ as solution to mankind’s problems.

    Writng is an almost never ending endeavor. Finding the right word in proper order is fun and challenging. Thank you for making my journey easier by providing the list.

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for this list. It's very much appreciated. I only discovered your blog recently, I've been searching around it, but I can't find what I'm looking for: information on what I think is being called in the last few years a revival of "new Christian fiction" and agents/publishers willing to take on new talent in this area.

    I've written professionally my entire career. My first novel is complete, I've completed a memoir-through-interview of a life-long merchant marine (two excerpts to be published in literary journals), started a second novel, and have plans for two or three more books. I must not be reaching the right agents for this genre. Do you have any pointers on seeking those agents/publishing houses particularly interested in writers who write realistic Christian fiction (think Flannery O'Connor meets Cormac McCarthy and Michael Ondaatje)?

    Hello Mike, and I too thank you for this blog. I do have two questions though. I am a new author, I have no previous writing experience (per se), no "platform", etc. How can I get an agent to take a chance on me when I have nothing to offer on behalf of what they ask for but my manuscript, which to them I may not be qualified to write? Why is the writing industry is discouraging to new authors (with no connections or marketability)wanting to get traditionally publshed, even though there manuscript may be great?

    Hello Mike,
    I am a Muslim convert and have written a powerful novel set against the final year of the Iran-Iraq war and how the Armenian church sacrificed all at the front lines at a dear cost to young priests. I feel the story must be told to the world but not a single agenet has expressed interest citing "not a fit for us." Is there a visionary agent who could take on this international best seller?

    Mike, thanks for sharing your knowledge. Really helpful. My question comes from a different perspective. I am new agent. Have sold a few titles (non-fiction business motivation) but have not yet sold or tried to sell a religious / faith-based title, although I have several I am looking at and want to pitch. I want to do a good job, represent prospective authors well and not create any damage by being "green" to working with Christian publishers. Would you or possibly one of your associates be willing to chat with me for a few minutes to help enlighten me on a few tips to adhere to or pitfalls to avoid? If not, would you have any suggestions for where I should turn to help soften the learning curve?

    Hi Michael,
    I am so excited to read your list. I have a question. I am the creator of 23 Christian Meditation CDs that I sell on my website (www.thechristianmeditator.com) and have done really well. I want to create a CD titled The Best of Christian Meditation & Relaxation (that would include 4 guided meditations) and propose it (through an agent) to a publishing company. I just began reading your article on writing a book proposal that said to submit two chapters. Since it is a CD and doesn't really have chapters, would you suggest sending the meditation transcripts or the actual audio? If audio, should I send one guided meditation sample, partial recordings of each, or full Cd? I look forward to your answer.

    Hi Mike,
    I sent an earlier message about being able to get the attention of editors but not agents…

    I have just signed up with Les Stobbe. Is he known to you? I see he's on your list.

    Blessings,

    Just want to thank you for making this information available. I thought the most difficult part of writing a book was going to be in finishing it. I usually write short things, like editorials, scripts for commercials, documentaries, and corporate video, and a column for a newspaper. 400 pages later, I have learned that the most difficult part is not in the writing, but in the finding of a literary agent… not even a publisher, but an agent. No wonder The Shack was first self published. Thank you again for helping this climb seem easier. Best blessings,

    Mike,
    I want to thank you for kind of “making a way where this seems to be little way” so to speak. After doing some research online with Christian Publishing houses and finding out that Tyndale was one that only accepts material through an “agent”, I was actually surprised (but grateful) to run across your web-site. I received my calling from the Lord years ago to write as well as teach the word, but when I thought of how to get my works out there (safely) or at all, it became a bit overwhelming…where to begin? “Thank you” for giving all of us aspiring authors a board to spring off of and if nothing else, a “free” education on the process and protocol of publishing!

    Blessings to you,

    What’s truly remarkable about your post is that ALL the resources you need, for each Agent, are in one place. The hotlink email address is one thing, next is the link to a website, so you can see the PERSON you’re directing your communication too, and then the contact information.

    Perfect.

    Was curious if there are publishers specializing in spiritual — rather than strictly Christian — topics. I rather doubt Jesus himself would consider himself a Christian in what we call “Christendom” these days.

    Dec 2007 – 2008 was truly a extraordinary year for myself.
    After being woke from my sleep in the early morning hours with a voice telling me to wake up and write to feeling this invisible pushing going on, life from that moment on changed and transformed my life forever. Only rededicating my life two weeks prior to this after batteling the Lord for over 30 years was I to know what the Lord was up to. The writings promote love, hope, faith and alot of revelation writings. Not ever reading the bible, it is amazing how the writings line up with the Bible.
    With this, my first writing “To Set You Free” is now being pushed in the music world. If you would like to hear this Mr. Hyatt you are welcome to go to my webpage: http://www.evahiers.com I can promise you this, I believe the Lord will speak to your heart.
    It truly is an amazing story, only one that the Lord could write. A real miracle!!!
    This book is dedicated to the Lord in helping to reach souls who need a word from Him or souls who are looking for more in life and want to believe the Lord still speaks to ordinary people.
    The title of my book is A Spiritual Awakening “Inspirational Writings from the Holy Spirit” Like your other writers we all have a story and I thank you that you took the time out of your very busy schedule to add names of agents for everyday people who truly knows no-one in the world of Publishing with the exception of Xulon, along with the leading of the Holy Spirit!
    I wish you all the best and may the Lord richly bless you.
    In Him, Eva Hiers

    Michael,

    Thank you, not only for the list, but for your interest in helping those of us who are plugging along in the writing field.
    My area of writing is a little different. I write to hunters and fishermen. Since there are over 70 million of us, it seems to be a good market and one that mostly goes unmet. I often say I’ve never met an atheist hunter. I’m sure there is one somewhere. But anyone who spends time outdoors has no problem believing in God. I have found they may be unsure about church, Christians, and even Jesus, but they are very sure about the existence of a Creator. I write for over 70 weekly/monthly publications. My column talks about hunting, fishing and the outdoors and has a Christian message. I have also self published two books which are a compilation of those articles. They are titled, Outdoor Truths, Hunting and Fishing for Answers, Volumes I and II. Since I speak across much of the country, I get to sell them at these events. I’m putting out a new volume of my articles every other year and am writing some other material as well. I am interested in finding an agent or publisher for my upcoming projects that deal with my subject matter. Do you have any advice for folks like me who are sort of outside the box?

    Thanks again,

    Gary

    Sorry to be a late poster Michael but I've just discovered your blog. I'm writing Christian teen fiction (two fully completed manuscripts and more on the way) but I'm born, bred and living in the UK. All the agents you listed are in the US as indeed is most of the Christian publishing industry and the networking opportunities that can yield that key opening. Can you offer any suggestions for those of us across the pond?

    Michael,

    Thanks so much for posting this list, this is such a blessing. As a self published author of We Are Expecting!, a unique keepsake prayer journal for expecting parents, I will use this list to contact some Christian agents to represent me. My book is getting a lot of buzz and media attention here in Atlanta and is selling very well online, so I believe that it's time to take it to the next step and that is to find a publisher. Thank you very much for this…I will keep you posted.

    I've been following your blog for about 8 months since I heard you on the radio teaching history.

    Just now, I finally read this list of literary agents. I started scrolling through it and made a quick assessment that there are very few west coast-based agents. Then I noticed three Wolgemuths in a row, and experienced this immediate flashback. You're THAT Hyatt! I've known your last name from the spines in my library for almost twenty years!

    I think my friends and I kept your former company in business (at least for a while). I'm enjoying discovering your stuff NOW, but to my pleasant surprise, you've been hitting me with good material ever since my formative years!

    Hero worship? Not quite. I don't want your head to swell. (I'd have to accept responsibility if it did, and I'm not prepared to do that.)

    I just want to let you know that I'm grateful. Carry on.

    Dear Hyatt,

    I am a Nigerian-based christian writer and blogger (www.nuggetz4life.blogspot.com) and I write both poetry, fiction and non-fiction and have completed two manuscripts; one deals with God’s Presence, and the newest discuss the challenges of sexual addition and temptations to 21st century christians…in the light of sex scandals hitting the church. The purpose is to help believers become ‘sexually-savvy’ and adopt strategies to help them keep their faith, and live holy in this sexually-liberal century.

    I was wondering if you’d recommend any agent or publisher for me.

    Hi, I'm new to this site and I have a couple of questions I'm hoping someone will help me out with.

    I'm looking for an agent that represents Christian authors. Is it a good idea to send prospective agents a copy of my book proposal without them requesting it? If that's not a good idea, can you tell me why?

    If it is a good idea, is it also a good idea to send the proposal to more than one prospective agent? If not, why not? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Dear Mr. Hyatt,
    Thank you so very, very much for posting this list. I am a published author who would like to write for the Christian market. I have an agent but she does not handle the non-fiction genre. I have never seen a list of Christian agents before. What a great help! Thanks again!

    • http://www.michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      You are welcome!

  • T. Mallory

    To those of you posting, I have to make this comment. Mr. Hyatt was kind enough to post this list of agents. If you’ll go to their websites, most of the time each agent will list the kind of books they represent (children, YA, adult, nonfiction, fantasy, etc.) or you can call the agency and ask which agent handles the genre you are writing for. If you don’t know how to submit a manuscript to an agent, you should google that particular question and you’ll find the answer. There is a wealth of information out there concerning the generalities of writing and submitting your writing to agents and editors. A list of Christian agents, however, is rare. Thanks again, Mr. Hyatt!

      Unfortunately, I can’t John. You will just need to query some agents to find one that might be interested in your project. I don’t know of any shortcuts for that. Thanks.

    Hi Michael,
     
    Thanks for this list. I’m in search of just the right agent for my debut novel, and have queried a few that I have found here.  
     
    Just wanted to inform you, as I’m sure you already know, that Kelly Gottuso Mortimer closed her literary agency. I saw her name on the list today and thought you might like the reminder so you can remove it.
     
    Thanks again!

    Thank you so much for this information.  I’ve been using agent query–it is nice to have a fresh list of opportunities.  I truly believe in the book I’ve recently self-published, but I feel an agent could open so many doors I’ve yet to encounter.  Thanks again for all of your work!

    Hi Mike,
    I thought the hardest part was writing a book.  Now that I have completed my book, I find the real work has just begun.  Getting my book published is the hardest part of the process.  Now, I am researching publishing companies (for christian authors), as well as literary agents. 

    I am more familiar with Thomas Nelson Publishing than any other; probably because I was born and raised in Nashville, Tenn., and because of my grandmother frequently read the Bible which had their name at the bottom of the first inside page. 

    My book is a story of my life.  I am currently 69 years old and was sexually abused as a child.  However, I am also a victorious overcomer through God.

    Thank you so much for sharing just about everything I needed to know. It is like a one stop shop. The only thing that I find to be a problem for me is it seems easier to write the book then the proprosal. Glory be to God, he will help me with that as well. Thanks again so much.

Next month in East Hampton, I will be featured doing a 30 minute TV interview about my book. I am searching for a Literary Agent that would be willing to help me to get a publishing company to publish it in Spanish and other languages. I had started a series of youtube videos when God told me to Do the book!” I have an e-mail list of followers.  You can go on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com to see the reviews as well.

    Hi Michael

    *Love* your e-books on writing a winning proposal, and would recommend them to anyone! It is not my kind of writing but your books made it shockingly easy and, dare I say, fun! They are available at: http://michaelhyatt.com/product/writing-a-winning-book-proposal. 

    A friend connected me to an agent for a book I’m working on, and that agent–Chip MacGregor–felt the book had value and a market, but was not a topic/project he could sell. (Super nice guy!)  He then recommended another agent and I am waiting to hear back from him. I see both of them on your list and that reassures me. I very much respect you and appreciate all you do to help people! Many blessings!

    I have written a meditation book that I hand-bind  and hand-sew myself.  The meditation book has beautiful photography.  It is a quality book.  I have gotten nothing but positive feedback.  I need to find an agent that can help me market this book.  I am almost finished with a second book as well.  I just need to find the right market for this material.  Thanks for any help.

    Mike, We found your list by accident.  I think it is great and it gives a brand new author a place to start.  Thank you very much. My wife wrote a wonderful book and we sent the self written propasal letter to two names on your list 5 days ago and we have already received one response and communicated through the sample chapter and are now on the full manuscript.  We feel like this might be a beginning so I can’t say thank you eneough right now.  The agency that responded is one of the biggest.

  • Brook

    Your list of literary agents IS most helpful.  However, after having run the gamut (while searching for one that publishes Children’s Picture Books), the list needs updating.  Some of the websites no longer exist, and a few are not exactly “Christian”.  Nevertheless, it was still helpful as a starting point.  Thanks for the hard work in putting it together.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Brook. I really count on the agents to keep it updated, but perhaps I should be more pro-active.
      Also, I refer to this as “Literary Agents who Represent Christian Authors” on purpose. They are definitely not all Christian. Thanks.

  • Madeleinecalcutt

    One of the people who commented on this site said that Zachary Shuster Harmsworth do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. This appears to be the case as it is stated so on their website. I sent them an email asking them if they accept unsolicited query letters or book proposals and if they don’t and if they do not accept anything unsolicited, how do they get their clients? How do they solicit authors, and could they please solicit me!
       It will be interesting to see if they reply to me and what they say in their reply. It sounds as if it is a Catch22. An author has to have an agent to get an agent. If that is the case, what agent would refer an author on to Z.S.H., I wonder?

    I wrote a book about true miracles that have happened in my life. I went with a company that I shall not name. Things did not work out there so I have pulled out. It was a print on demand company. I have redone my book with a  much nicer cover, corrections have now been made, and I am wondering if there is any hope of my getting in with a real publisher. By that I mean Someone who will pay me instead. Pat G

    • Madeleinecalcutt

      I believe an agent is the way to go. There are also agents listed in Jerry Jenkins’ Christian Writer’s Market Guide 2012. This is a worthwhile book to purchase – a very valuable tool and resource. You can buy it from Amazon and I think it is about $30 plus postage. I would recommend it. Your book sounds very inspiring and readable. All the best with it. God bless you from Madeleine

    Can you list separately a list of Christian children’s literary agents? I think some of the agent’s don’t handle children’s books. But there often is no way to discern this.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      No, I’m afraid I don’t. If there are any children’s book agents on the list, it’s an accident.

    • Sara Kendall

      I found a couple of them after reading through the list. Two that attracted my attention are D. C. Jacobson and Folio Literary Management. Folio has a Folio Junior section. They do not specify Christianity like D. C. does, but they give you a good feeling that they know what they are doing.

  • Jessica Berg

    Thank you so much for this list:) I appreciate it as this will come in very handy. What is the likelihood of an agent looking at a self-published book? I really regret self-publishing my first book, and I’ve heard that agents steer clear of those.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com/ Michael Hyatt

      Not true. It’s really about whether it looks and reads like a self-published book. Smart agents will see the opportunity in a well-written book.

  • MELIMELI

    I REALLY DO APPRECIATE YOUR EFFORTS IN COMPILING A LIST OF LITERARY AGENTS SERVING CHRISTIAN WRITERS. MAY I SUGGEST YOU DO A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF AGENTS SERVING CHRITSIAN SCRIPT AND MOVIE WRITERS FOR THE BENEFIT OF SOME OF US ASPIRING AUTHORS AND SCREEN WRITERS.

    I am very grateful for this website. I was at a lost for where to go to. My co-author and I had published the first 3 of our series of children’s Christian books, and are not very happy with the way things are going with the publishing company we are with now. We decided we would go the route of a literary agent to re-do the books we have done, and finish our books with a ‘true’ traditional publishing company. Thank you for having this website.
