WCA represents literary fiction; quality upmarket commercial fiction including mysteries and thrillers; narrative non-fiction in the genres of memoir, history, biography, science, journalism and current events; and a limited range of practical nonfiction. We take on children’s and young adult writers very selectively. The agents bring their diverse interests to their client lists, but are generally looking for authors with a mastery of language, a passionate, expert or original perspective on their subject, and a gift for storytelling.
Though we are taking on very few new clients, we accept electronic query letters. Please include your credentials, a synopsis, and a short sample of no more than ten pages in the body of the email. No attachments please. We receive hundreds of submissions a month, so we encourage your patience.
Westwood Creative Artists will reject submissions clearly addressed to multiple agents at the same time, unsolicited complete manuscripts, and submissions that are poorly presented. Please note that WCA does not represent screenwriters, and our agents are not currently seeking poetry or children’s picture book submissions. In most cases, it is best if you approach WCA after you have accumulated publishing credits.
All queries should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
