For email queries, a one page letter will suffice. No attachments, please. All of The Seymour Agency Agents prefer email queries and ask that you paste the first five pages of your manuscript into the bottom of your email.
In the interest of protecting the environment, please forward all submissions electronically.
We make a conscious effort to reply to every query we receive. If you do not receive a request for additional materials within three weeks, you should assume that we are not interested in that particular project. Please know that our opinion is but one, and another agent may feel differently. We wish you the very best!
May God Bless you in all of your writing endeavors.
