About QueryTracker

Let QueryTracker tell you more about this literary agent. Including...

  • Query Response Times

How it works?

Writers provide data about their query experiences with literary agents.

That data is then compiled into reports showing details about each agent's query history, allowing writers to reach the literary agent that is right for their book.

Why is QueryTracker Free?

QueryTracker is free because it is our goal to collect as much data as possible about query letter results.

To do that, we need as many members as possible to submit their data, and the best way to do that is to make it free.

So please, join us in building the web's largest collection of query data.

Thanks for your query. Unfortunately, I do not feel that I could be the best advocate for your work. Please keep in mind that mine is a subjective business, and an idea or story to which one agent does not respond may well be met with great enthusiasm by another, and I encourage you to continue writing to agents. Hopefully you will find someone who will get behind you and your work with the conviction necessary in the current market.

Clark is an agent who asks for a large number of partials and fulls. While that fact might prevent authors from feeling “special”, it should make everyone feel pretty good. Here is an agent willing to take the time to give many budding authors a chance, rather than demanding to be wowed by the first paragraph of a query or the first few lines of a manuscript. Clark’s style seems sort of…well….fair. Yes, he is a bit slow to respond, and the response may well be a form rejection, but given how much time he must be taking going through his pile of partials and fulls, an open-minded writer will cut him some slack.

I actually received two form rejections, with the first immediately followed by a “that was sent by mistake” email. When the second and actual rejection came, I already knew what to expect. That it was a form rejection didn’t bother me, as I had come to appreciate he gives so many of us full airing. Better he use his time on that than attempt to salve our egos. Besides, we’re the writers; if our work isn’t up to snuff, it’s our responsibility to make it better or more relevant.

Just one fella’s opinion. Query him, and if he takes you on, I'll bet you'll be well-served.

(modern tragicomedy or some such label-less genre)
