Fredrica S. Friedman & Co., Inc. - Literary Management  


Fredrica S. Friedman & Co., Inc. accepts query letters by e-mail for both fiction and nonfiction representation. We DO NOT, however, represent poetry, plays, screenplays, children's picture books, sci-fi/fantasy, or horror.

Your query should be concise, and include a summary of your proposal or a synopsis of the manuscript, and pertinent author information, including relevant writing history, publications, your Internet presence, and your educational and employment backgrounds. If you are a fiction writer, we also request the first ten pages from your manuscript to provide its voice, style, and presentation. We ask that you keep all material in the body of the e-mail.

We receive a very large number of inquiries, and respond within six weeks. Please note that we do not return hardcopy submissions.

All queries should be e-mailed to:
