Default Agents for Novellas


Hey..

I've written a novella at around 36k words. Now I know that agents and publishers don't usually take novellas, and it is very difficult to sell them, but... I have also heard that there are a few who do publish them. So... if any of you know agetns/publishers who use novellas, please let me know.

This is a good question. I've got several novella-length stories languishing on my hard drive. My personal "pipe dream" is that one day I'll be a famous, best selling novelist, and my publisher will demand that I release a compilation of short stories for my millions of fans - at which point, I'll magically hand over these short stories to great applause.

Try going to Duotrope and putting in the keyword "Novella." A whole page of publishers who take novellas comes up. You'd have to investigate their webpages to see if they're taking submissions and what not, but they're out there.

@ Devon: Duotrope was a good idea. I certainly found a few people there, and I've applied to them.

Thanks a lot for the great info!

@ Owen: Trust me dude. I think YOU would definitely make it. After reading your short story in the fiction section about the "inner monkey", I'm sold!!
