At JABberwocky, your manuscript queries are important to us. Many of our most successful clients have been represented here for close to 20 years—from their very first books—and the discovery of new talent is important to us. We are interested in a broad range of fiction and non-fiction intended for general audiences, but note that we handle only book-length material. Please visit our individual agents’ pages for information about our reading and query preferences.

Please observe the following additional guidelines:

  • We do not accept queries by phone or by fax.
  • We only respond to unsolicited queries by mail when they are accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) or, for international queries, an international reply coupon (IRC) if US postage is unavailable.
  • Email queries must be directed to an address listed below.
  • Unsolicited email queries sent to any other address are considered spam and will be deleted unread.

You can mail your queries to:

Some advice: unless you are sending additional submission material, please use a #10 (business) envelope. A #10 SASE is also recommended unless you wish for additional materials to be returned. Trust us, it will save you a lot of money in postage (46 cents per item). We can’t even begin to count how many one or two page queries show up in big envelopes with similar big envelopes for a one-page response. So please do yourself a favor and stock up on #10 envelopes with self-adhesive labels.
