I'm not entirely convinced they are closed to unsolicited manuscripts. There are two places that say open and one place that says closed.

Open: https://us.macmillan.com/torforge/about/faq#how-do-i-submit-writing-to-tom-doherty-associates-llc
Open: http://www.torforgeblog.com/faq/#11
Closed: https://us.macmillan.com/torforge/about/contact#Submit

Anyone know how to figure out which one is accurate?

Quoted from their website, 8/10/17: "We do not accept any unsolicited material, or responsibility for loss or damage to, or return of, any unsolicited materials you send to us; unsolicited materials will be recycled or otherwise discarded."

I read their submission requirements online. But I was wondering if they require an exclusive. To wait six months without a sure response (from all the comments) with someone getting an offer after submitting elsewhere. Does anyone know for sure?
