Literary Management


Submission Process 

CookeMcDermid welcomes people of all backgrounds, identities, and perspectives to submit their work using our submissions form. Please note that we do not accept screenplay, stage play, poetry, or picture book queries. Right now, we are especially eager to read thrillers, horror, commercial suspense, speculative fiction, upmarket women's fiction, middle grade, YA, literary fiction, research-driven non-fiction, and narrative non-fiction.

Each submission is read and considered with care. However, due to an extremely high volume of queries, we cannot respond personally to each one. If we are interested in seeing further materials, we will be in touch via email within twelve weeks of receipt. To withdraw your submission or inform us of any offers of representation or publication within our evaluation period, please use our contact page.
