Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in Hannigan Salky Getzler Agency. At HSG we collaborate on the books we represent and often discuss potential projects and queries with one another. With that in mind, we prefer that you query only one agent within HSG. If we discuss your project and discover that it’s a better fit for another agent in the company, we’re likely to pass it along to that person. You can check out our agent bios for more information on each agent’s particular interests. Please note that we do not represent screenplays, romance fiction, science fiction, or religious fiction.

HSG only accepts electronic submissions. Please send a query letter and the first five pages of your manuscript (within the email–no attachments please!) to the appropriate agent for your book. If it is a picture book, please include the entire manuscript. If you were referred to us, please mention it in the first line of your query. We generally respond to queries within 4-6 weeks, although we do get behind occasionally.

We’re not always able to respond to each query with detailed feedback but we do appreciate all of your efforts and wish you the best of success with your writing career!
