Please carefully review submission guidelines before contacting WordLink.

First and foremost, send only a query letter. No attachments. No chapters or samples. The ability to follow instructions is a vital part of the process, from query letter to published book. All queries sent with attachments or chapters included within the email are deleted without response.

Fiction or Nonfiction Queries

  • Email your query letter directly to one of our agents or submissions@wordlink.us.

  • Put the title of your work in the subject line.

  • All queries are reviewed by each of our agents, but it’s best to start with the one you believe would be most interested.

  • Works of fiction should be complete, and nonfiction proposals should be thorough and professional.

  • Please be patient. It can take two weeks or longer to give your query full consideration.

  • If interested, we will request to see more of your work.

Manuscript Requests

  • Send full or partial manuscripts only when requested to do so by a WordLink agent in response to your query letter.

  • Be absolutely sure your writing is the best that it can be.

  • Send as a Word Doc, not a PDF.

  • Format your manuscript properly. If necessary, consult online resources. We’re not overly strict about minor details, but we do expect manuscripts to generally align with industry standards.

Film or Television Queries

  • Email your query to Dean Krystek.

  • In the subject line, include the project name and whether it is a theatrical/television film or series.

  • In the body, provide a brief synopsis of the project, genre, source material (published book, unpublished manuscript, original story, etc.), and whether you have an agent for the source material. If the source material has been published, you must have film rights to the work, or the publisher must agree to let WordLink represent the film rights.

  • Also indicate if you have an available treatment (theatrical/television film) or bible (television series).

Rights Inquiries

  • Put the title of the work, author, and "rights query" in the subject line. Send it to Dean Krystek.

  • Clearly state the rights in which you are interested, the publisher/producer you represent, and your telephone/email contact details.

General Inquiries

  • Identify the nature of your email in the subject line (question, request, comment, interview, etc.).

  • We endeavor to answer all emails promptly (although query letters can take longer to be properly considered). However, please be advised that certain emails are deleted automatically and will not be responded to. These include:

    • Query letters with attachments or sample chapters

    • Mass email

    • Solicitation email

    • Emails that include inflammatory or abusive language.

Thank You!
