Submission guidelines


E-Query Guidelines

We prefer e-queries. Please mention ‘query‘ in the subject line, and do not include attachments.

Send e-queries to contact @ If we are interested, we will usually respond within twelve weeks. We are unable to respond to e-queries unless we are interested in pursuing.

Queries by mail

Please submit a query letter with a brief description of your project and a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope) for a reply.
Queries are generally answered in 8-12 weeks. We are able to respond only to queries that include a SASE.

If we request more material, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Submit a clean, easy to use package. Give clear instructions about what you’d like done with the material you submit: either provide a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope) for return of the material, or instructions to discard the material and return a response. Either way, a SASE is virtually the only way you’ll get an answer to your mail query. We can’t be responsible for saving, storing or returning any materials not accompanied by a SASE.
  2. Don’t call to be sure the package has been received. If you really must know, include a SAS postcard to be returned upon receipt.
  3. Be patient. Responses can take up to three months, sometimes even longer.
  4. We consider every manuscript carefully and respond as quickly as possible.
  5. Don’t take rejection personally. More often than not a rejection is not about your writing; rather it’s that you’ve gotten it to the wrong person at the wrong time. Look at the package critically and send it out to another.
