Wolfson Literary Agency is a green agency and as such, only accepts online queries. Snail mail queries will not be read or returned.

WLA has found numerous clients in the slush, including Kiersten White (NYT bestseller), Mark Di Vincenzo (NYT bestseller), Kasie West, Tawna Fenske, and Meghan Rogers. It happened to them; it can happen to you. Don’t give up.


Please note: WLA has a NO RESPONSE MEANS NO policy.

We’re really sorry about that. However, if you follow the guidelines, we will see your query. We will read your query. And we will respond to your query (if we like it).

Responses to queries tend to come VERY QUICKLY, anywhere from 5 minutes to 48 hours. If you have not heard anything within 4 weeks, you should assume we think your query is well written and that your book sounds interesting but that unfortunately, it is just not the right fit.

We tend to respond to partials VERY SLOWLY. If you have not heard back on your partial in 6-8 weeks, you should feel free to send a polite follow-up email. And every 4 weeks after that until you wear us down. We wouldn’t say this if we didn’t mean it.

Thank you, as always, for your patience! And best of luck to you all.
