NY SCREENWRITING AGENTS (Got a Script? Need an Agent? Here are 50 in NY.)

NEED A LITERARY AGENT

Screenwriters need Literary Agents. Actors need Talent Agents. Producers need Packaging Agents.

AGENTS-2 (Although visual states “Hollywood Agent” the below list is solely for NY Agents that make Hollywood deals)

If you are a Screenwriter, with a script that has been Written (Treatment & 2 Drafts), Registered (WGA East or West), Copyrighted (Library of Congress)….and has been written with a structured Beat Sheet (40-60 scenes outlined), with the correct writing format (Final Draft, Movie Magic or Celtx), with character with great dialogue that are believable (likable or not) human beings.. then you are ready to proceed with obtaining an agent.

50 NY LITERARY AGENTS

Below is a list started by Michael Bernard in 2012 that has merit.

In the following 6 weeks I will post 100s of more agents with a focus on the Major 6 Packaging Agencies (“CAA”, “WME”, “ICM”, “UTA”, “APA” & “Paradigm”) that have 1,000s of agents and staff in New York, Hollywood, London, Memphis, Miami & China (“CAA” only).

NY-AGENTS-2 (Correct Format, Great Dialogue, Cut-To-The-Chase Grabbers, Structured A-Story, 3-Sub Plots, Superb Conflict, Fascinating Characters & Fulfilling Resolution… “Okay, so that was 8 Things”)

  1. Mark Aylward

    What are the means for Canadians to get literary agents in the US?

  2. Harold Clark

    You’re an idiot. This list is useless. Not only is it four years out of date but roughly 95% of the agents listed DO NOT ACCEPT UNSOLICITED MATERIALS and work on a REFERRAL basis only.

    Why the hell are you wasting everybody’s time with this crap? Do your research, you lazy fool.

  3. CS

    I totally AGREE with Harold Clark — this agent list is a WASTE of time — that’s hugely OUTDATED. Obviously, NO care whatsoever (or due diligence) was put into creating this incredibly incompetent and useless list. 2 EXAMPLES: The Abrams Artists agent listed (Morgan Jenness) is out of the business since the 1990’s according to Abrams. And CAA agent Simon Green does NO work whatsoever with screenplays according to his assistant at CAA!

    Dov Simens obviously put little or NO effort into actually creating a useful, accurate list here — and that’s WORSE than no list at all. Indeed, NO list at all would be far kinder — by at least sparing people this total waste of time (contacting people who are not even close to being what was represented on this ridiculous time-wasting list). Very frustrating.

  5. Hello, i think that i saw you visited mmy web site so i came to “return the favor”.I am attempting
    to find tyings to enhancxe my site!I suppose
    its ok to use some of you ideas!!

  6. Dystel & Goderich does not represent screenplays. It says so here: http://www.dystel.com/faq/, number six. Someone might want to fact check the rest of these as well.

  7. I have a boatload of scripts: ORIGINAL material: This stuff hasn’t been seen: I need an agent with the connections: Thank you.
