- Query letters must first be sent (either by mail, fax, or e-mail) before any material can be considered. PMA strongly prefers email queries. It may take up to 6 months to respond to a paper query. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY E-MAIL ATTACHMENTS! Please include your query letter and pertinent information in the body of the email.
- ANY unsolicited material will be discarded, no exceptions.
- PMA will ONLY respond to the query letters if you include a SASE or e-mail address. Please take care to include your name on all query materials.
- Should PMA request your material, you must enclose an appropriate SASE if you want it returned to you. If we pass on your project and you have not enclosed an SASE, all materials will be discarded, no exceptions.
- When submitting a manuscript that PMA has requested, always include a detailed synopsis and any other relevant information, even if it was included in your original query.
If you are looking for a manager for your Novel, Non-Fiction Book or Screenplay, we would be happy to consider a query letter from you via snail mail or e-mail. Letters should include basic information about your project (title, premise, length), and a brief paragraph on your background and future goals. Please also include a one-page synopsis of the work, which captures the main idea, plot and themes. Always include a self-addressed stamped envelope for our reply, and an additional envelope or box for any materials you wish to have returned to you. Please note that postage meters are only valid on the date of issue. If you query us via e-mail, please insert all information in the body of your e-mail, as we do not download attached files.
Rest assured we’re as eager to find new writing talent as you are to be discovered, so please know that we’re working as fast as we can to respond to your work. Calls confirming receipts of query letters or manuscripts tend to slow us down. If you’d like formal confirmation that we have received your work, we suggest you use Registered or Certified Mail.
Our address and contact information is available in the Contact Us section of this Web site.
Based on your initial query letter and synopsis, our office may request sample chapters, your manuscript in its entirety, your nonfiction proposal or your completed screenplay. If your work is under consideration by another agency or management company, we ask that you let us know at that time.
