Submit a Query to Annalise Errico at Ladderbird Literary Agency
Please make sure your work is publisher-ready before you submit! If you have any questions about the genres I represent, please visit here or here for more information. At this time, I am NOT accepting picture books; middle grade; horror; science fiction; apocalyptic/pandemic related fiction of any genre; novels-in-verse or poetry at this time.
If you are pitching a NOVEL, please include:
- Query Letter
- Pitch (up to one paragraph)
- Three chapters
If you are pitching a graphic novel (I ONLY accept from author/illustrators), you may upload the pitch packet or link to a dropbox. I would like to see the following in your pitch packet:
- Query Letter
- Story Synopsis
- Character descriptions/arcs
- Three chapters of script with finished art
You may write N/A in any text box that isn’t applicable.
Just a reminder: this is a subjective industry, and what doesn't appeal to me, might be the perfect fit for another agent. I know someone out there is waiting for your story! I look forward to reading your query. Thank you!
