For email queries, a one page letter will suffice. No attachments, please. All of The Seymour Agency Agents prefer email queries and ask that you paste the first five pages of your manuscript into the bottom of your email. Nicole runs a paperless office and ONLY accepts email queries.
For snail mail, include the first three chapters, synopsis, and a SASE for our response (see contact page for address). Be sure to include the appropriate postage if you want your materials returned.
Our policy is to recycle manuscripts.
Simultaneous submissions are acceptable for queries and partials. However, we only review complete manuscripts on an exclusive basis.
The Seymour Agency also includes a prayer card to soften a rejection. If this offends you, you may want to query someone else.
In the interest of protecting the environment, The Southwest Florida Office has gone paperless. Please forward all submissions electronically.
We make a conscious effort to reply to every query we receive. If you do not receive a request for additional materials within three weeks, you should assume that we are not interested in that particular project.
May God Bless you in all of your writing endeavors.
