Are you interested in working together?
Please read these guidelines.
Please note: We are currently closed to queries. Please check here or Query Manager for updates. We're aiming to open to queries in Fall 2023,
When we are open to queries, if you would like us to consider your nonfiction book project, please submit your project in Query Manager at https://querymanager.com/lynnjohnstonlit
If you don't already use it, Query Manager is a service for writers looking to match with agents. You may wonder why not just email your query directly rather than go through the hoops of another website. Let us explain. First, when you hit send on Query Manager, you will have confidence that your message did indeed reach its destination and didn't get lost in the ether or spam folder. Second, like many agents, we don't respond to email queries if the project isn't a match, whereas on Query Manager we aim to give a thumbs up or down to nearly every project. Third, because it helps manage the flow, we can cut the response time so you know within weeks. There is zero cost for you to use Query Manager. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO USE IT.
If you must email us directly at email@example.com. Please note we only respond to queries that are of interest. If you don't hear from us in a month, please assume it's not a match.
You do not need to query or submit materials to us exclusively. If we had requested additional material from you, and you receive an offer of representation from another agent while we are still reviewing it, we would appreciate you letting us know.
Thank you for your interest in working with us and good luck with the querying process.

We are interested in the wide range of nonfiction, especially reported narrative, current events, business, science, health, and self-help. Please consider recent deals and books as a loose guide to the kinds of projects that may be of interest but if you're unsure (and it's nonfiction), just try us. Please note the only fiction projects we consider are from current clients.
