Submissions/Contact Us

Our literary agency is actively seeking new and/or established authors in a variety of genres and categories of both fiction and non-fiction. We also accept submissions from authors, agents and publishers who would like to self-publish e-book original titles through our eBook program, or take part in our foreign rights or audio offerings.

 

Published Authors:

If you are a published author, please send a query letter using the form below to one literary agent only. Your query should include only a paragraph about yourself, a brief plot synopsis and your contact information; it should not include a manuscript, a proposal, or any writing samples. If the agent wishes to read your submission, he or she will contact you in response to your query. Please do not send a manuscript or proposal until you have been requested to do so by an agent. We do not accept simultaneous-submissions that have been sent to other agents at Trident Media Group. After the expiration of a 30-day period following a submission to a Trident agent, you may make a submission to another agent at Trident. Multiple submissions made within a thirty-day period will automatically be blocked.
