Two websites that are helpful to writers hoping to publish. Preditors and Editors rates agents, publishers, contests, screenwriters and host of other things. It rates them – recommended, okay, and to be avoided.
Another excellent site for the writer trying to get published is Query Tracker. This web site divides agents and publishers by your interests and then gives you lots of information about each, such as their website, where to find them on Preditors and Editors, and how to keep track of your contacts.
