Writers Book Proposals Writers wishing to submit manuscripts to publishers should check the publisher’s website for their submission guidelines. Most publishers will want to receive a letter of enquiry and then a book proposal that, for a non-fiction title, outlines the market for your book, how your book contributes something new to the subject, who you are and why you are qualified to write this book, a table of contents and a sample chapter.
Often in the case of fiction and poetry it is useful to have your work published in a literary magazine before submitting the manuscript to a book publisher. Literary Agents It is not absolutely necessary to have a literary agent, and it is sometimes as difficult to get representation by an agent as it is to get a publisher. Agents work with their clients to present the best possible manuscript, they seek suitable publishers for their clients, they negotiate on their behalf, and they monitor sales and marketing efforts of the publishers.
