© Whitney & Hughes
A new client typically establishes relationships with us through querying, although we may meet in other ways such as at a writer's conference. A query is an unsolicited proposal for representation, either for a finished work or unfinished work.

We request new clients to include the following elements in our query packet:-
  1. A query letter (1-2 pages) explaining the purpose of the work and any writing qualifications of the author.
  2. A synopsis or outline is requested as part of the query.
  3. The first 3 chapters (equivalent to 50 printed pages) of your work.
  4. For paper queries, a self-addressed stamped envelope must be included to receive a response. If your written query is accepted or rejected the response will be sent in the self-addressed stamped envelope.
  5. Email submissions are acceptable.
