LDLA is always excited to find new talent. If you love our books and think your project is a good match, please consider submitting your work. But please carefully review what category* each agent represents before querying. Diversity is always welcome.
*Please note that LDLA does NOT represent screenplays, poetry, or illustrated adult books. We also do not accept queries or manuscripts in Spanish.
LDLA accepts email submissions only, so please follow the directions below closely. We do our best to answer every query letter within 2-4 weeks. If you receive a manuscript request, response time is closer to 8-10 weeks. Please wait to follow up until after the full length of time has elapsed. However, if you receive an offer of representation from another agent, please let us know immediately so we can respond within the timeframe you require.
Please only submit to one agent at a time* with one project at a time, making sure that your manuscript or proposal is complete and ready to be sent if requested.
*If you are querying after a Twitter pitch contest such as #pitmad or #DVpit, and more than one LDLA agent has favorited your tweet, please feel free to query simultaneously. We just ask that you let us know if more than one of us is considering your project.
