Please join the agents and staff of KT Literary on Monday, September 26th at 12 noon MDT (11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern) for an #AskKTLit Twitter chat! We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about what an agent does, the querying process, how to navigate the challenging worlds of traditional and self publishing, subsidiary rights, and more. If you’d like to comment below with any advance questions, we’ll start with those, and move on to more questions as they come in.
We’re also putting out a call for #OwnVoices submissions. We would love to see even more of these in our query inboxes, and to that end, if you have an #OwnVoices manuscript and want to query us, for the rest of September and the month of October, we’re promising a 48 hours turnaround on any queries sent as per the usual submission guidelines, but with the #OwnVoices hashtag.
As always, we’re committed to working with authors to produce and publish stories that reflect the world around us, and are proud supporters of the We Need Diverse Books and Own Voices movements. If you have a manuscript that you believe fits the bill, even if you prefer not to self-identify, we’d love to see it.
