Literary agents represent authors to publishers. They negotiate contract details and provide representation if any part of the book is illegally reproduced.

Literary agents are selective about who they will represent, and it is usually helpful for an author to be referred by people who work in or are familiar with the publishing industry. Typically, agents only accept a few clients in each year. **Please note that as the ACP does not publish books or represent authors, we are unable to refer any prospective writers to literary agents.**

Please see the listings below for contact information for several literary agents/agencies in Canada.
