AGF Publishing Submission Guidelines

AGF Publishing Submission Guidelines

Currently, we do not publish or accept submissions for poetry or children’s picture books. However, we accept submissions that have an original, completed full-length fiction or nonfiction manuscript. Please, do not send a query until the manuscript is complete, polished and ready for review. We do not accept partial manuscripts for novels. Nonfiction can be queried with a proposal. Also, do not query more than one project at a time. Due to marketing and distribution constraints, we work with North American authors only at this time.

  • We accept simultaneous submissions.
  • Authors do not have to be represented by a literary agent.
  • We are open to reviewing works from any genre as long as they fit well with one of our imprints.

AGF imprints currently open for submissions:

Floyd’s Gap - young adult literature, teaching materials, and writing resources for emerging writers. We are looking for series made up of short novels in the 25K-30k word range with short, high-action chapters. Have at least the first book of the series completed upon submission. Teaching materials are generally connected to Floyd’s Gap novels.

Northside Books & Media - encourages and equips Christians worldwide through fiction and nonfiction. We accept titles in all genres (fiction and nonfiction) that incorporate the Christian faith.

204 Cherry Street Books - fiction and nonfiction in various genres from gifted writers and storytellers who have a vision to share with the world. We are particularly looking for manuscripts of a literary nature that don’t fit into the niches of Floyd’s Gap nor Northside Books & Media.

When submitting, please provide the following:

  • A brief, one to two-page synopsis of the entire manuscript, with an estimated word count of the complete work.
  • A sales pitch for the book: What makes it unique and who is your target audience?
  • At least 30 pages of the manuscript.
  • Information about you and your writing background.
  • Our response time can take up to 6 months, so we do accept simultaneous submissions. Please let us know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

Submissions can be addressed to submissions @ agfpublishingcompany DOT com

In the subject line state the following information: Imprint you’re submitting to - the book title - genre. Include the full query in the body of the email, not as an attachment. Attachments
