Submission Guidelines

The Friedrich Agency has three principal agents: Molly Friedrich, Lucy Carson, and Kent Wolf. If you decide to submit your query to us, please query only one of our agents.

Please refrain from sending unsolicited manuscripts. We are a small but busy office and unless we read your letter and request to see more, piles of unsolicited manuscripts will make us nuts! A standard query letter, articulate and informative, is preferred. Here are a few quick notes:

  • We no longer accept queries (or printed books) in hard copy, email only. Please use the body of the message to present your work (no attachments), and please do not attach your manuscript unless we request it. We don't open attachments without knowing the sender, or expecting something in particular

  • Please do not show up at our offices unannounced. That scares us! It simply does not advance your cause.

  • Background and personal information (when relevant to your project) is encouraged, but ultimately our interest will depend on the synopsis.

  • The overwhelming preponderance of our list is “fiction and non-fiction for the adult trade audience”. Are there exceptions? Of course! But we do not EVER represent screenwriters or picture book authors.

Don’t panic! Do the best you can, and we’ll do the best we can.
