 An initial submission of 50 pages from a novel or a longer work of nonfiction will suffice and should be pasted into the body of your email
 Electronic portfolios from illustrators are accepted but please keep the images at 72 dpi - a link to your web site or blog is also helpful
 Electronic picture book dummies and picture book texts are accepted
 Graphic novels and comic books are accepted
 We do not require exclusive looks at manuscripts
 Feel free to update your submission if there is a status change (ie new representation, contract, etc.) 
 Unfortunately the ease of electronic submission has made it virtually impossible to respond to each submission personally. You will receive an auto-generated response to confirm your submission but please understand that further contact will be made only if we feel we can represent your work.
