My Manuscript Wish List
I am looking for big stories, the kind of book you want to talk about with everyone. I am building a list of upmarket and reading group fiction, and narrative non-fiction. I am particularly looking to work with debut writers.
What I'm Looking For:
Submissions should be emailed to email@example.com
Thank you for considering Paper Literary for your submission.
We accept all submissions by email. We ask for a query letter, synopsis and the first 10,000 words to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you submit, you will receive an automated response email. Please consider this email as receipt of your work. We read every submission that we receive, and we consider each submission carefully. We will be in touch as soon as possible if we’d like to read more of your work. As much as we would like to, due to the number of submissions we receive, we are not able to personally respond to every submission.
We encourage you to submit to multiple agencies, and we do not expect to have exclusivity. If you receive a full manuscript request or offer of representation, please do email a follow-up with “Full MS request” or “Offer of Representation” in the subject line.
