Querying the Virginia Kidd Agency
We are open to query submissions during the following US time zone periods:
We seek quality fiction and specialize in speculative works: science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Contact us when we are open for submissions with an email that includes a brief message, your bibliography, and any relevant industry information (co-authored works, previous representation, awards, nominations.) Include a brief synopsis and the first 1-3 chapters. All of this as text in the body of your email.
We answer as many submissions as we can possibly fit into our schedule. This can take months. Please don't check in with us on your query's status. (Most publishers and agents consider the lack of a reply to be a "No" or only accept mailed submissions, so please consider our workload.) We accept queries via industry professional referrals year-round. If this is an avenue you can utilize, please do.
We have a rich history of starting authors' careers from the outset, so we do not limit our clientlist to referred authors or published authors only. However, we must limit the amount of new careers to foster. If you find yourself among those authors on our list, you'll understand why we can't spend hours a day on new queries.
During the open-for-queries dates above, send your query to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and best of luck!
