Submissions

Writers House represents writers of fiction and non-fiction, for both adult and juvenile books as well as illustrators. Our agents work with literary and commercial fiction, women's fiction, science fiction/fantasy, narrative non-fiction, history, memoirs, biographies, psychology, science, parenting, cookbooks, how-to, self-help, business, finance, young adult and juvenile fiction/non-fiction and picture books. We are interested in and work with authors at all stages of their career. Please e-mail us a query letter, which includes your credentials, an explanation of what makes your book unique and special, and a synopsis. Some agents within our agency have different requirements. Please consult their individual Publisher's Marketplace (PM) profile for details. We respond to all queries, generally within six to eight weeks.

We receive hundreds of submissions a month, all of which receive careful consideration. This takes time, so we encourage your patience. If we request your manuscript, we prefer that you send it to us on an exclusive basis.

Please do not query two agents within our agency simultaneously; however, if the first agent you submit to should pass on your project, please feel free to resubmit to another agent here.

Most of our agents prefer e-mail queries, but if you'd prefer to mail your query, send it to the appropriate address below. If you are submitting by mail please include a self-addressed-stamped-envelope for our reply. 

All queries may be addressed to individual agent at:

Writers House
21 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10010

If you wish to submit to Steve Malk in our San Diego office, queries may be addressed to:
