Our full acquisition team will review all submissions. You may address query letters to the FVP Team, or directly to our acquisition editors as they are added to our team.

For all initial submissions, please allow a 4 to 6 week response time. We strive to respond to each submission, so if you don’t hear back from our team within six weeks, please re-submit or send us a nudge.

For fiction and narrative nonfiction, please only submit completed and polished manuscripts that have been through vigorous self-editing. Though our editors will assist you with revisions, you have one shot to wow us, so make every effort to provide quality work.

We do not expect exclusive submissions (this should go without saying) but ask that if you choose to submit to a small press publisher directly, you do not simultaneously submit to agents. If you have an agent, they are welcome to submit to us for you.

We are not currently not accepting Picture Books, Children’s Literature, or Chapter Books. We plan to launch our children’s department by 2018. We are not currently accepting novellas.
