Laura Gross Literary Agency

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Thank you for your interest in submitting to LGLA. Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting any unsolicited submissions. We apologize for any inconvenience. When we have reopened our submission portal, our submission link will be featured here: Our general submissions guidelines are as follows:

At LGLA we welcome submissions in all fields and charge no reading fees.

We love to nurture writers who enlighten and provoke. Currently, we are particularly interested in multi-cultural literary fiction and nonfiction, espionage mysteries, unique upmarket fiction with a diverse cast of characters, and underrepresented voices and stories in various genres.

Also note that we do not represent the following genres and formats:

  • Science Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Romance
  • Picture Books 
  • Middle Grade 
  • Young Adult
  • Screenplays
  • Any work that has been previously self-published

After selecting the category below that most closely fits your work, you will be asked to create a free Submittable account. On the submission form, please include a concise but substantive cover letter. You may include the first 6,000 words of your manuscript in the form as well. We will request further sample chapters from you at a later date, if we think your work suits our list.

We will make every effort to respond to your query within a timely fashion but please remember that LGLA receives a high volume of queries every day. This means that it may take us 3-4 months to respond to your query. We’re sorry for this, but it simply cannot be avoided if we are to read each submission properly.
