***PLEASE READ CAREFULLY***The Corvisiero Literary Agency accepts queries from both established and emerging authors. We pride ourselves on taking a personal approach to the query process. Make sure you follow our guidelines carefully to help us provide exceptional service.
We respond to all queries, but response times vary by agent. If you have not heard from us in 3 months, feel free to follow up to confirm your query was received. Please do not follow up before this time unless you have received an offer of representation or publishing contract.
The Corvisiero Literary Agency accepts electronic queries only.
Because each of our Agents has their own personal submission preference, once you have selected an agent to address your Query to, please review their submission preferences for detailed instructions. There is a submission preferences section on each Agent's page.
Please note that none of our Agents represent Screenplays, Poetry or Novellas (except for Romance).
For fiction, we require a query letter pasted into the body of your email along with a 1-2 page synopsis (that includes spoilers and the ending) and the first 5 pages of your manuscript either attached as 2 separate Word .doc files or pasted into the Query email.
For non-fiction, you should include a full proposal (including a sample chapter) instead of the synopsis, but make sure the Agent accepts non-fiction, and follow their specific submission guidelines.
All sample pages must be properly formatted into 1 inch margins, double-spaced lines, Times New Roman black font size 12.
Before submitting, please keep in mind these simple Query Do's and Don'ts:
