Submission Guidelines

To submit a project, please send a query letter along with a 50-page writing sample (for fiction) or a detailed proposal (for nonfiction) to queries@mwlit.com. Samples may be submitted as an attachment or embedded in the body of the email.

Please only query one agent at a time; we frequently share interesting submissions within the agency. We prioritize queries addressed to a specific agent; please know that if you elect not to do this (eg, "dear agent"), your query is less likely to be read. A rejection from one agent means a rejection from all agents—please do not resubmit unless your project has been substantially revised, or we’ve requested that you do so.

We do not accept mailed queries. We do not represent screenplays.

Please be advised that due to the large number of queries we receive, it is not always possible for us to respond to every one; we assure you that we are reading your material and will be in touch if we are interested.
