To query, please send a letter, brief synopsis, and the first 5-10 pages of the manuscript/proposal pasted into the body of the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You should indicate the agent you are addressing the query to in the subject line. Please do not include email attachments with your initial query, as they will be deleted.
Average response time is 4-6 weeks, so please do not follow up any sooner than that.
Please do not query more than one agent at a time. You may refer to our Staff section to review each agent’s interests and specialties. If your work has already been reviewed by another agent at the company, please make note of that in any future submissions.
Please note that we do not accept queries by phone or physical mail.
