re: Wait Till After Summer to Submit?

in Submissions by

Dear Editor…

I’m nearly ready to submit my manuscript to agents, but I’m wondering about submission timing. Is Summer okay? Wait till Fall? Does it matter?

Sincerely,
To Wait or Not to Wait

Dear To Wait or Not to Wait…

Don’t let fear of your submission getting buried in vacation backlog stop you. Some agents may have summer vacations planned, but plenty don’t. And there’s simply no reason to try to Crystal Ball their schedules or inboxes—if they’re fast responders, they’ll probably respond in their usual speedy manner or close to it during summer, and if they’re slow responders, get into the queue now. I hear this time and again from agents, and confirmed it with some quick touch-ins after receiving your question. So, ready to submit? Then submit away!

Happy writing!
The Editor
