The Aaron M.Priest Literary Agency


Our submission policy is as follows:

Please submit a one page query letter via e-mail.

The query letter should describe your work as well as your background. Please do not send attachments, but do paste the first chapter into the body of the email. Please do not submit to more than one agent at this agency. (We urge you to consider each agent’s emphasis before submitting.)

Due to the tremendous number of queries we receive, we are not able to respond to everyone. We will get back to you within four weeks, but only if interested. Thank you in advance for your submission.

Please note: For all agents: no poetry, no screenplays, no sci-fi and no horror.

It’s come to our attention that scammers are impersonating our agents on social media. No one from our agency will contact you via social media, ask for personal information, or solicit a payment of any kind.
