Our typical response time ranges from 5 minutes to 6 weeks. While we endeavor to respond to all queries as soon as possible, we receive approximately 20 to 30 queries per day, so please be patient and feel free to contact us if you have not received a reply after six weeks. Please do not call us to pitch your story. We prefer to see written material. We do not represent plays or screenplays. We do not represent science fiction, cookbooks, gardening, craft books or children's picture books. While we love literature in translation, we cannot accept samples of work written in languages other than English. We do not accept email queries.
