Query Guidelines

The best way to contact us regarding a potential project is via email at query@dsmagency.com. We no longer accept unsolicited query letters through regular mail. Be sure to read our Representation page very carefully to find out about the types of books we are interested in before sending your query.

In your query, please only include:
1. A synopsis of your project in one to two paragraphs.
2. Your credentials in another paragraph.

Do not send attachments or links. All queries should be directed to the attention of Doris S. Michaels Literary Agency, Inc. If you do not hear from us within two weeks, please assume that we have decided that your project is not right for our agency.

If we request materials from you, please review our Nonfiction and Fiction Proposal Guidelines prior to submission.
