re: Do I Submit Using My Real Name or My Pen Name?

Dear Editor…

I’m writing my fiction under a pseudonym. Do I submit the query letter to agents with my real name or pen name?

Sincerely,

It’s nice to end the week with a chuckle! I’m happy to support your anonymity here. As for using real name versus pen name during submission, it needn’t be an either/or issue. You’ll be doing business with your agent using your real name, so lead with that even as you present both. Sign your query letter as, “[Your Name], writing as [Pen Name].”

Happy writing!
The Editor
