Submission Guidelines

Beginning October 1, 2021, we will be open to limited young adult submissions to both agented and non-agented authors. 

Authors, please note we do not take manuscript pitches via telephone or regular mail, and we regret we cannot answer any questions related to publishing, editing, or finding an agent. All submissions must come through a literary agent. 

Please note that we only work with established agents that adhere to the Association of Authors' Representatives Canon of Ethics. If you charge your clients a reading fee or any fees up front, we will be unable to consider your client's work. 

Please read our Young Adult Guidelines thoroughly before submitting. 


To submit your work (or your client's work) to Vinspire Publishing, please send a detailed query in the body of an email which should include the following:

  • a brief biography which details your publishing credits, if any, your social networks and credentials that establish you as an author invested in your career, i.e., a member of writing communities, reading groups, and any writing-related awards or recognitions;

  • at least two paragraphs, but no more than three paragraphs, about the book;

  • the word count, whether or not the book is part of a series, and the sub-genre of the young adult book.

Please attach the polished, completed manuscript and include Young Adult Submission in the subject line when sending your email. Please make sure you have read and agreed to our family-friendly statement

Word count should be between 35,000-60,000 based upon the detailed guidelines linked above. We cannot make exceptions for word count.
