Metamorphosis Literary Agency Submissions


Include a query letter (state genre and word count), author bio, the first ten pages or three chapters (for Patty), and synopsis within the body of the email or QM. Please query only unpublished projects. Response time is 6 months. If we do not respond within that time, unfortunately, that means we have passed and are not currently interested in the work. We cannot accept submissions that do not follow these guidelines.
