Please include e-mail address in your query letter, as that is the preferred method of communication.

Submission materials should be considered disposable. However, if you include an SASE that is large enough, we will mail them back to you. What is an SASE? A self addressed stamped envelope. You include the postage, and mark your address as the return address.

E-mail should be sent to:
You may attach your synopsis and first ten pages, or you may include them in the body of the e-mail.
