Hello Beth! Hopefully someone hasn't asked you about this yet :x but I'm nearly finished my first sci fi manuscript which I want to hopefully get published. The thought of finding an agent is already giving me panic attacks but I came across DAW (which is affiliated with Penguin). I don't need an agent to submit to this publisher. Is this a good idea or no? If it's a bad idea I don't even know where to begin to look for an agent and it's making my head spin D:

Hello! 

Personally, I think you still need an agent. Here’s the thing: an agent is SO MUCH MORE than just submitting your manuscript to a publisher. Your agent reviews the contracts, works on subsidiary rights, scouts for more opportunities, helps guide your career, reads future works, intervenes when there’re issues in the publishing relationship, and so much more. Seriously. When I was querying, I remember having this same sort of attitude–if I could just get past the gate and onto a publisher’s desk, I wouldn’t even need an agent. But that is really just not the case. If you want a career in traditional publication, you need an agent. 

Even if you subbed to DAW and got a contract, I still think you’d be better off by having an agent negotiate that contract. My agent has MORE than earned her 15%. But beyond that–you’re basically limiting yourself to a very small portion of publishing by not getting an agent. Your work may be accepted, but it may be a better fit at another house that does require agents. 

Fortunately, it’s not as intimidating as you think! I suggest going to querytracker.net to start. Begin by just compiling a list of agents who rep the sort of thing you write. Get a query letter polished and clean (you can get crits of yours at YA Writers Reddit), and just send them out. 

You’ll be rejected. I guarantee it. But that rejection will help you–almost as much as an agent will.
