In the happy event that we do request further material from you, some helpful reminders: 


Please use a size 12 font. 

Please double space your manuscript. 

Don't forget to number your pages



ippin Properties, Inc. is an agency devoted primarily to picture books, middle-grade, and young adult novels, but we also represent adult projects on occasion. We are always on the lookout for writers and illustrators who take the challenge of creating books seriously and are willing to give the publishing world nothing less than their very best.

All queries should be directed to our general email address - You are welcome to query an individual agent or the agency as a whole.

If you are a writer who is interested in submitting a manuscript, please send us a query and include the first chapter of your novel or the entire picture book manuscript within the body of your email. Please also include a short synopsis of the work, your background and/or publishing history, and anything else you think is relevant. No attachments, please.

For illustrators interested in submitting their work, please send a query letter detailing your background in publishing or illustration and any other pertinent information along with links to websites with examples of your work. No attachments, please.

Unfortunately we are not a large enough agency to respond to each query individually. If you don't hear from us within three weeks, please understand that we have read and considered your query and have concluded that we are not the right agency to represent your work at this time.

If we do request additional material, we would appreciate the exclusive opportunity to review it for one month.

If you have any other questions regarding Pippin’s submission policy or guidelines, please email us at Thank you!
