"Sterling Lord Literistic, Inc. is highly selective in offering representation to writers, and many of our new clients are referred to us by authors or publishing professionals. We receive an extraordinarily large number of unsolicited submissions and can seriously consider only those with merit. Please submit a query letter, a synopsis of the work, a brief proposal or the first three chapters of the manuscript, a brief bio or resume, and a stamped self-addressed envelope for reply. Original artwork is not accepted. Enclose sufficient postage if you wish to have your materials returned to you. We do not respond to unsolicited e-mail inquiries."
