Please choose the agent who is the best fit for your work, then send a query letter by email, with the word QUERY in the email’s subject line, to:
If you are querying Shannon Hassan or Jolene Haley, please also include your first ten pages pasted in the body of the email below your query.
Patricia Nelson is currently closed to queries, except by referral.
Please do not query more than one agent at our agency at the same time. As a courtesy, if you choose to submit to a second MLLA agent after one of us passes on pages, please let us know in the query letter that you have submitted the project to one of our colleagues in the past.
Our agency accepts electronic submissions only.
In all submissions, please include a contact phone number as well as your email address. If we are interested in your work, we will call or email you. If not, we will respond via email. We welcome unsolicited materials and look forward to reading your work.
