Looking for an Agent?
Looking for a literary agent? Maybe we can help.
Between our four agents, WordServe Literary offers more than 50 years of experience in all aspects of helping authors get published with traditional publishers. Depending on the client’s needs, we may provide writing critiques, editing of manuscripts and proposals, and following up with sales and marketing. Most importantly, we keep our finger on the pulse of this ever-changing industry so that we can expertly advise our clients.
At WordServe, we partner with writers to strategize their writing career as a whole. Our attention to detail starts with editorial advice on proposals and manuscripts, ensuring that the author presents their work in the best possible light. We carefully handpick specific editors at the more than 75 publishing houses we work with in the general market and Christian book industry. We are known for negotiating contracts with meticulous care. We walk with authors through the entire publishing process, including offering marketing knowledge as well as brainstorming and planning future books.
WordServe represents a diversity of authors in fiction and non-fiction, faith-based and General Market, mostly for the adult market, although we’ll occasionally take on a children’s or YA project. In fiction, we’re interested in a broad spectrum of genres including suspense, romance, women’s, and Christian fiction. In non-fiction we’re looking at business, military, biography, health, self-help, memoir and Christian topics. We represent writers of all levels, from first-timers to multi-published authors, to both the Christian market and the General market.
WordServe was founded in 2003 by Greg Johnson, after having previously been a literary agent with another agency for nine years.
