Did you know that Tor/Forge takes unagented submissions for science fiction and fantasy manuscripts! But it doesn’t end there. They’ll also take fiction of all other types including but not limited to general fiction, historical fiction, horror, mystery, paranormal, suspense/thriller, urban fantasy, and woman’s fiction. Among the age groups they accept are middle grade, young adult, and adult. But they do it the “old school” way. So, no sending emails with attached documents. This publisher wants paper submissions. Whoa!
If you have a manuscript that fits one of these genres and age categories, then be sure and check out their submission guidelines. And as always, good luck!
