Do I Need A Literary Agent?

Indigo River Publishing is one of the few publishing houses that accepts new author submissions for review. Although IRP does work with professional literary agents, an agent/representation is not required. 

When submitting your work directly, it is important to take your time so you can make a great first impression. Please read all instructions below to ensure that you meet our requirements.

New Authors, please follow these instructions below.

Fill out the form below and attach your manuscript where indicated. Your submitted manuscript should be a Word file only (.doc or .docx). Please include your cover letter at the beginning of your manuscript and submit as a single file. The cover letter should include an introduction, a summary or sound bite, and author biography. If you need assistance with writing your cover letter, please click [HERE] to read a detailed blog that you should find helpful.

Every manuscript that is submitted per instructions will be reviewed. Our acquisitions team takes every submission seriously and gives each one adequate time to determine fitness for publishing with Indigo River.

After your manuscript has been reviewed, you will be contacted. Please double check your contact information to ensure everything is correct. If your manuscript is not selected, you will receive a letter via email that may include feedback with editing suggestions.
