CONTACT

You can get in contact with me at jared@olswangerliterary.com or by following me on social media.

 

NB: I will be closing to submissions from 15 December until 15 January. 

Submissions

Please direct queries to jared@olswangerliterary.com. If you are querying for fiction, send me your query letter in the body of the email and the first 25 pages of your book as an attached document. If you are querying for nonfiction, please send me your query letter in the body and book proposal as an attached document. In your subject line, please include the title of your book and its category and genre.

I will respond to all initial queries and try to respond within 4 to 5 weeks. If you have not heard back from me by then, feel free to send a follow-up email.

If I have requested your full manuscript, please allow 12 weeks for me to read your entire work. As above, if you have not heard from me by then, feel free to send a nudge.

Suggestions

I want you to find the best home possible for your book, so don't feel like you need to submit exclusively to me. Find other agents who you think will represent you well too. 

Please query me with projects I will represent. 

There are some great resources out there to help you write a great query letter and learn more about the writing and querying process! I recommend taking a look at: 

  • Pub(lishing) Crawl's website and especially their PubCrawl podcast 

  • Manuscript Wishlist's website and also their podcast, The Manuscript Academy

  • The Shit No One Tells You About Writing podcast
