Submit a query letter via mail or e-mail (include "Query" in the subject line) with a brief summary or synopsis of the project; any pertinent author information, including relevant writing history; and a word or page count. If querying by e-mail, please remember to include a return e-mail address.
"Query letters should be concise: one or two pages. Please do not direct us to websites. We do not return manuscripts unless original art or other special materials were sent at our request. Therefore, please, no need for return postage! We receive many submissions daily and cannot respond personally to each and every one. Please forgive us if we do not get back to you; our silence is not meant as a slight or a judgment on your work. In the event that your project seems like a good match for our agency, we will contact you as soon as possible."
