Please submit to only one agent.

Ellen Geiger and Sam Stoloff are now accepting queries exclusively through the Submittable website; all queries to them should be submitted there, and not by email.

On the Submittable site, you will be prompted to choose a category, and then to create a user account. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to paste your query in the Cover Letter/Biography field, and attach sample and supporting materials. Please address your query to either Ellen or Sam, so that we know who you are intending to submit to.

Matt only accepts queries via email. Please send them to

Please note that we do not handle screenplays, romances or most other genre fiction, and hardly any poetry. We do not handle work that is racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic, or pornographic.

There is no charge for reading. We try to respond in 4 to 6 weeks.
