If you’re a YA writer and you don’t have an agent, you know it can be hard to get your work read by some of the publishers–the ones who don’t accept unagented queries.
Well, right now you’ve got a fantastic (if short) window of opportunity. Both Carolrhodo (Oct 1-31) and Harper Voyager (Oct 1-14) are temporarily accepting unagented manuscripts. If you have a completed, polished manuscript, I suggest you send it out to them! You don’t have anything to lose.
See the links to the posts for the details on both. Make sure you follow their submission guidelines. Good luck!
