Agents Accepting Queries
Rica Allannic | nonfiction only
At this time, no paper query submissions will be accepted. Any materials sent to us by mail will not be read or returned.
TO QUERY THE AGENCY:
Please review each agent's page to see whether they are accepting queries, and to get a better sense of what kind of material they are looking to represent. Some agents might have more specific instructions for what to submit, but if they do not, then please send a 1-2 page query letter to the email of the specific agent that you would like to query. This letter should describe your book, include information about any previously published works, and describe your intended audience.
Remember that this letter is our introduction to your work and who you are as an author and, if applicable, an expert in your field. If someone kindly referred you to us, do please let us know.
For nonfiction queries, please attach a proposal of your book. For fiction queries, the first several chapters should suffice.
Please only query one agent at a time. Usually, if the agent that you have queried is not interested but thinks that someone else in the agency might be, they will pass your material along.
WE ACCEPT QUERIES BY EMAIL SUBMISSION ONLY. WE DO NOT ACCEPT QUERIES BY PHONE, MAIL, OR FAX.
- Do not forget to include contact information.
- Please allow a minimum of 8 weeks for a response, depending on the current volume of submissions, it will likely be longer.
- We do not keep and are not responsible for maintaining records or copies of the queries we receive.
