Lucinda Literary looks for 3 key criteria when considering new clients for both fiction and nonfiction: a big idea, distinctive writing, and a convincing platform. These keys are further explained in the book Get Signed: Find an Agent, Land a Book Deal, and Become a Published Author, written by Lucinda Halpern.

Most agencies require a complete manuscript (for fiction) or book proposal (for nonfiction). If you need help beginning or improving a book proposal, we can recommend book collaborators. Just check that box in your submission.

If you are still in the discovery process of crystallizing your book’s big idea, genre, comparative titles, pitch, or author platform, it’s our mission to better prepare you for the highly selective world of publishing. Through our educational services company, The Lucinda Literary Academy, writers can meet with agents virtually or take on-demand classes—anytime and from anywhere, at any stage in the process, whether you’ve published a book before, or are actively querying agents. We love to meet beginning writers, and those who are farther along, but who still seek big-picture guidance and direction to dramatically increase their chances of success.

If you’re confident that your submission is ready for representation, use our easy form below to submit your work! We look forward to receiving it.
