How I Found the Agency

First point of call for finding a literary agent is clearly the Artists and Writers Yearbook. A quick look through the agents section shows that at least 30% refuse to accept any unsollicited submissions - so they are out. Another 50% probably don't do current affairs - so they are out. What is probably unique about the AL Agency is that because it does non-fiction and current affairs, it is open to unsollicited approaches offering new material. Moreover, AL does not just send out computer-generated 'get lost' letters, he actually seems to look at the proposals he receives and responds effectively. And, in my case, what was really important, was that AL doesn't seem to give up - after all, it took about 3 years for me to get a contract.
