As of November 1, 2013, Wolfson Literary Agency is OPEN TO QUERIES!!
Wolfson Literary Agency is a green agency and as such, only accepts email queries. Snail mail queries will not be read or returned.
Please e-mail your query to firstname.lastname@example.org
FICTION: please put “Query” and the title of your book in the subject of your email. Please paste your query letter and the first FIVE pages of the manuscript in the body of the email.
NON-FICTION: please put “Non-fiction query” and the title of your project in the subject.
All queries should be typed directly into the body of the email and should include word count. Attachments will not be opened and will be automatically deleted.
QUERY FUN FACTS:
The following current clients were found in the slush: Kiersten White (NYT bestseller), Mark Di Vincenzo (NYT bestseller), Kasie West, Kimberly Sabatini, Tawna Fenske, Linda Grimes, Travis Sentell. It happened to them; it can happen to you. Don’t give up.
QUERY NOT SO FUN FACTS:
Please note: I have a NO RESPONSE MEANS NO policy.
I’m really sorry about that. I wish I didn’t. I wish I had a more advanced set-up where I could auto-respond and tell you I received your query. But I don’t.
What I will tell you is this. I check my junk mail frequently. If you follow my guidelines (i.e. put Query: title), I will find your query. I will read your query. And I will respond to your query if I like it.
I tend to respond to queries VERY QUICKLY, anywhere from 5 minutes to 48 hours if I am interested. If you have not heard from me within 2 weeks, you should assume I think your query is well written and that your book sounds interesting but that unfortunately, it is just not right for me.
I tend to respond to partials VERY SLOWLY. If you have not heard from me on your partial in 6-8 weeks, you should feel free to send me a polite follow-up email. And every 4 weeks after that until you wear me down.
Thank you, as always, for your patience! And best of luck to you all.
