Literary Management


CookeMcDermid welcomes people of all backgrounds, identities, and perspectives to submit their work using our submissions form.

Each query is read and considered with care. However, due to an extremely high volume of submissions, 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 query or inform us of any offers of representation or publication within our evaluation period, please use our contact page. 

Our agents are especially eager to read thrillers, horror, commercial suspense, speculative fiction, middle grade, YA, research-driven non-fiction, and narrative non-fiction. We encourage you to visit our about us page to find the right agent for your project. Please note that we do not accept screenplay, stage play, poetry, or picture book queries.

The recent safari update affects the function of the form. Please use a different browser to avoid the error message.
