Many agents say to put contact information in the query letter but they never specify what forms of communication. Should we include our phone numbers? Social media? Website?

I put my phone and email, although truthfully I don't expect them to respond with anything other than email. If you have an online platform that is relevant, you can include a link to that, too, like if you have a blog. Some people might say include your Twitter account, but I don't have one of those, so I haven't thought too hard about the issue. I suppose it depends on how you're using it, so if you are using your Twitter account to further your writing in some way or using it to pitch agents during #Pitmad, then it's relevant to include.

Please note I'm also posting on behalf of people who can't sign up, so if I provide a link in the main body of the post, make sure to reciprocate on that thread.

My go-to for any agent:
Phone #
Twitter handle
For some agents (based on their bio or their background), I'll add my blog and/or fanfiction account.

I include (below my name):




home address


phone number


Probably this is overkill, but I don't think it hurts.
