Competition is tough. We are looking for stories that grab us, hold our attention and are slightly out of the box. Look at our other publications to see what we publish in each genre.
Also, begin your subject line with QUERY for
(editor’s name): (title of the manuscript)
(e.g. QUERY for Jean: The Hobbit Takes Manhattan).
We love all our writers, current and prospective, and we will respond to each inquiry so you aren’t in limbo.
If you haven’t heard from us feel free to nudge us after three months.
If you still have questions, we have an Author FAQ that may address them, or you can always use our Contact Us page to reach out to us.
We like to see
Well-written, concise letters that include your bio and any relevant writing experience. If you can pitch your entire manuscript in three sentences and make us want to read it, you’re already ahead of the game. Feel free to include in the body of the email the first 10 pages so we can get an idea of your writing. We do not open unsolicited attachments.
If we do request a manuscript, our turnaround time can be a few days to six months, so please be patient.
We will also ask you for the synopsis at this time.
