Laura Gross Literary Agency

AAR Member: Yes

Accepts Queries Via...

Snail-Mail: No

E-Mail: No

Online Form: Yes

Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Does anyone know if you get a confirmation email for the online submission form? On 4/7/15, I tried the online form but didn't get a confirmation email. Is this normal?

Sent partial today (October 7), as I needed to craft an outline. I have no idea whether it was too long, too short, or just about right! We'll see. . . .

10/9: Confirmation email from her new assistant (came on somewhere after 8/25), Serene Hakim.

10/22: submitted revised chapter after receiving helpful comments from another agent -- Serene is lovely and it's a pleasure to email with someone so thoughtful and communicative.
