How to Query
We will respond to all queries within six weeks.
If we are interested in reading more, we will request a partial manuscript and synopsis. Partial and full manuscripts should follow William Shunn’s Manuscript Format and use a standard font such as Times New Roman, Garamond, or Georgia. Courier is okay if you absolutely insist. Please use italics—do not underline to indicate italics. Responses to partial and full manuscripts may take several months.
Multiple & Simultaneous Submissions
Because response times may be long, we highly encourage authors to submit simultaneously to other publishers who also allow simultaneous submissions. If you are offered a contract by another publisher before we respond to your query or manuscript, please let us know right away.
Please note, you are welcome to query a novel/novella and also submit to a World Weaver Press anthology at the same time.
Please do not query agents and publishers at the same time. To understand why, see this article.
