The Poisoned Pencil submissions

Dear Writers and Agents,
The Poisoned Pencil uses an online submissions manager to review materials from both authors and agents. Please do not query or submit your MS by email or snail mail. No simultaneous submissions; one submission per author at a time. You will be able to check the status of your MS using the submissions manager. Response time is currently 4-6 weeks. If we decline your MS, we will not consider it again, even if it has undergone extensive revision.
Please read the guidelines that follow before submitting your work, as our needs are quite specific.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing your work!
The Editorial Staff

Submission Guidelines

What We Are Looking For
We publish only young adult mystery novels, 45,000 to 80,000 words in length, in trade paperback and ebooks editions. For our purposes, a young adult book is a book with a protagonist between the ages of 12 and 18.
We are looking for both traditional and cross-genre young adult mysteries (see below for exceptions). We encourage off-beat approaches and narrative choices that reflect the complexity and ambiguity of today's world. Submissions from teens are very welcome.
