The publishing industry is tough and competition is fierce, so we look for outstanding voices—for writing that’s fresh, original, and effective. Most of all, we seek potential.
As of October 12, 2020 we use Query Manager for all submissions. If you submitted to the old submissions email address prior to that date, do not worry. Your query will be read and considered via the old email system. You do not need to resubmit. If you send an “offer of representation” notification email, we will respond to it the same as before.
If you submit to the old submissions email after October 12, 2020 your email will be deleted unread.
You can only submit to one agent at a time. If you need help deciding who is the best fit, click here to read about their tastes and wishlists.
Please note that Greenhouse does not represent: picture book texts by writers who aren’t also illustrators (unless you are already a client), short story collections, poetry collections, educational or religious/inspirational work, erotica, pre-school/novelty material, or screenplays.
After submitting, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to your personal query status page. If you receive an offer of representation, please use the “Send a Message” button on that page to inform us right away.
Thanks for thinking of Greenhouse for your work—and good luck!
