Q. Many of the agencies do not list literary agents, but President or VP only (in the case of Above the Line Agency). Should I phone and get a name of an agent within the company or send it to one of them? Also, many agencies have a listing of several agents. What is the best way to determine which agent to send to?
If you can get an answer over the phone, great. Many agents won't tell you who's the young, hungry agent. They figure if you don't know, they don't want you.
You could also Google the agency and see whose names pop up. Or, write to the VP. The assistant may forward your query to a young, hungry agent. Or he may read the script himself. (The assistant, not the VP.) Either way you're better off than querying the agency itself.
UPDATE: As Tenspeed and Brownshoe
points out, the best way to find out an individual agent is through the IMDBPro
