If your query is ready please send the query letter and 10 sample pages in the body of the email.
For Victoria, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure to include either the word "query" or the word "Submission" somewhere in the subject line! For Lee, please do the same, and send to: Lee.email@example.com and if you're submission is connected to an event, conference, on online contest - like #Pitmad or #DVpit please or #Pitdark - please also include that in the subject line!
Please only query one project at a time, unless otherwise requested!
One thing to note: Any queries sent to any other e-mail address, to the physical address, or with attachments will be deleted unread. Additionally, we do not take queries over the phone.
You should receive an automated response confirming the receipt of the query! If you didn't, please re-send and make sure you included "query" or "submission" in the subject and that all the material is in the body of the email. If this still doesn't work, just be patient. It's likely you ended up the spam filter. Don't worry! We check those, too.
If you did get the response! CONGRATULATIONS you've officially queried! Exhale!
You can expect a response to your query in about eight to twelve weeks. Sorry it takes so long, folks, but we read all our queries and we get a lot.
If we request your material, please send it as a word document or PDF! Thank you! You will get a response no matter what, but we do use form rejections & batch reply, so please don't submit multiple manuscripts at the same time unless instructed to do so. Also, if a batch reply isn't for you, please feel free to query someone else at IGLA. Sadly (I've done the math!) it's the only way I can keep up with the volume of queries I receive.
Still anxiously refreshing your inbox? Come back to this page of the website because we issue status updates (see below) that will show you how up to date we are on queries.
When to contact me: If it has been more than twelve weeks and you have not heard back about your query absolutely send me a friendly reminder! If I have reached or surpassed the date of your query (see below) and you have not heard back, give me a shout! If you submitted your query to multiple agents and you get an offer of representation (Congratulations!) please inform me of the offer.I get very sad when I read a wonderful sample, only to discover that it's no longer available because you've already signed with someone else!
PLEASE NOTE: IGLA is not a "a pass from one of us is a pass from all" agency. While we ask that you don't submit to any agents here simultaneously, if one agent passes on your material feel free to try another agent here!
