Algonquin Books Submission Guidelines
Algonquin Books publishes literary fiction and nonfiction. We don’t publish poetry or genre fiction (romance, science fiction, etc.). In late 2012 we will begin publishing literary YA and middle-grade reader books.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept unsolicited manuscripts or any electronic submissions. We do accept queries and will contact you if we would like to see the full manuscript. Please note that we cannot take calls regarding the status of your submission.
If you would like us to consider your manuscript, please send a short (no more than 15-20 double-spaced pages) sample of your work, a cover letter, a self-addressed envelope, and a check to cover return postage to:
For YA/MG submissions:
