Submissions are now open for Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction and nonfiction. For a limited amount of time, we will be reviewing MG and YA material exclusively. However, with the exception of picture book illustrators, submissions are still closed for picture books. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to resume reading PB material again soon. Those submitting the above specified material, please review our submission policies~
If you think you might be a good fit for Storm Literary Agency, and would like us to consider your work for representation, please adhere to the following guidelines:
Fiction: Please send the first three chapters with an appropriate pitch and very brief synopsis. No attachments please.
Nonfiction: Please enclose the project proposal, pitch/hook, and sample. No attachments please.
Please send only ONE project/proposal or manuscript (if requested) at a time. If we desire to read more work, we will request it. If we want to read the full manuscript of any submitted piece, we will request that as well. Please do not send additional work to us if we have passed on your original submission, unless requested to do so.
Illustrators: We love art, almost as much as we love literature. If you would like us to consider your work, please send us an appropriate query including information about yourself, and your work, as well as a link to an online portfolio. No attachments please unless requested.
If opting to mail material, please never send an original of anything. Mailed material will not be returned.
All material mailed or emailed should include a query letter with appropriate contact information.

We understand the tremendous desire to find an appropriate agent, with the hopes of subsequently securing an ideal publisher for your work. We realize there is a sense of urgency as you send your work off into the world. But we are a small agency. Our response time may be anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 weeks, depending on the projects at hand. If we find that we are not able to represent your project, we will always attempt to provide appropriate feedback of some sort, realizing the path to publication is a journey, and not always a fast one!
Best of luck ~Essie
