Know Your Genre
When submitting a query letter to an agent be sure to include the genre. Agents don’t publish everything they get their hands on; they are specific about which types to select. It is essential to know what category your project falls under, and research agents who publish that genre.
Film & Entertainment
Health & Fitness
Food & Lifestyle
Most of the genres listed are self explanatory. I might have missed a few and the sub-genres, but these are the top categories.
If your project has more than one genre, choose the dominate role.
Agents will list which ones they are interested in reading and reviewing on their websites or in forums. Do your research before sending query letters.
Take care, my friends. 🙂
