We no longer accept submissions by mail. Any material sent by mail with sufficient return postage will be returned unread. Material not accompanied by sufficient return postage will be discarded.

Due to the volume of queries we receive, please allow 3-4 weeks for a response. If you have not received a response within 6-8 weeks, you may assume that we have considered your submission and have determined it is not the right fit for any of our agents. A pass from an agent is a pass from the agency; please do not submit to more than one of our agents. No phone calls, please.
