Our submission procedure

In our search for talent, Inspired Quill accepts unsolicited manuscripts for one month each year. So if you have a completed work you would like to submit, you don’t need to ask an agent to contact us! Please make sure to read the guidelines on this page. Any submissions that do not conform to our guidelines will be deleted, and not responded to.

It may take up to 4 weeks (1 calendar month) for us to reply to your initial submission. If, after that time has elapsed, you have not received a return email, do feel free to contact us again for an update.

If you have any queries before you submit your work to us, you can get in contact directly using the email address in the blue box on the right-hand side on this web page.


All submissions should be 55,000 – 90,000 words, and should be sent via the form below. Uploads should include:
– A cover letter, which includes manuscript title, word count and genre
– A full synopsis
– The first two chapters of your manuscript
