If QueryManager provides an accessibility issue, our general query inbox is queries@ktliterary.com. Mails sent to this address will be distributed to the addressed agent and will be reviewed as time permits. We are not accepting snail mail queries at this time. If you have an aversion to email, perhaps we’re not the best agency for you. We also do not accept pitches on social media, except as part of an announced pitch competition.
