Submission Guidelines

Fiction - Query With:
Query Letter
Non-Fiction - Query With:
Query Letter
Instructions:
"General submissions may be sent via e-mail to submissions@movabletypenyc.com. For non-fiction proposals, MTLG requests a variation of the traditional query letter, a less formal, more efficient document: one page with three paragraphs. First, personal history and platform, including previous publications, media appearances, training, etc. Second, a concise description of the book concept, including unique selling points. Third, a preview of the promotional plan, including endorsements, media contacts, and brand development. Having found that that query letters do a fine job of showcasing one's talent in writing jacket copy or promotional material but rarely offer agents a useful preview of a writer's prosecraft, in lieu of query letters, MTLG asks that authors send the first ten pages of their manuscript, followed by a one page synopsis of the balance of the work, and a word count. Journalists--staff and freelance--are encouraged to contact MTLG by phone or personal e-mail."
