Submission Guidelines

Please read carefully as we have changed the submission requirements.

We now prefer to receive submissions via email. Please send them to queries@amyrennert.com. Due to the large number of queries we receive, we are only able to respond if interested.

For fiction, we'd like a query letter via email with the first ten to twenty pages attached in a pdf or word document.

For non-fiction, we'd like a query letter via email with the proposal attached in a pdf or word document.

Due to the high volume of submissions, it is not possible to respond to each and every one. Please understand that we are only able to respond to queries that we feel may be a good fit with our agency.

If interested we will respond within four to six weeks.

For authors querying us, we'd always like to know why.
