List of Commercial Fiction Literary Agents Now Accepting Submissions image

Commercial fiction is fiction that puts the reader first. That means writers, editors, agents, and publishers generally tend to make edits and revisions in order to create a story that all readers will love, not just those with master’s degrees in creative writing.

Unlike most literary fiction, commercial fiction novels appeal to a wider audience of reader’s and thus tend to have much higher sales potential. That’s why so many agents and publishers focus exclusively on commercial fiction.
