Submission Guidelines

E-mail queries can be sent to and should include the word “query” in the subject line. 

Barry Goldblatt is currently closed to all queries.

Please know that we will read and respond to every e-query that we receive, provided it is properly addressed and follows the submission guidelines below. We will not respond to e-queries that are addressed to no one, or to multiple recipients.

Your email query should include the following within the body of the email: your query letter, a synopsis of the book, and the first ten pages of your manuscript. We will not open or respond to any e-mails that have attachments. If we like the sound of your work, we will request more material from you. Our response time is four weeks on queries, six to eight weeks on full manuscripts. If you haven’t heard from us within that time, feel free to check in via email.
