Doubleday and Nan A. Talese

Pantheon and Schocken

Vintage / Anchor


Doubleday, Pantheon, Schocken, Vintage / Anchor, and Nan A. Talese only accept manuscripts submitted by an agent — the volume of materials we receive is just too large to accept unsolicited submissions. Any unsolicited manuscripts received by Doubleday, Pantheon, Schocken, Vintage / Anchor, and Nan A. Talese will be discarded. We are unable to return any such unsolicited materials.

FOR KNOPF ONLY — Knopf usually only accepts manuscripts submitted by an agent. There is an excellent listing of literary agents in a book called The Writer’s Market, which you should be able to find in a local bookstore, from an online retailer, or a library. You can also visit their Web site at for more information. If you still want to give us a try, though, even with that caveat, please send a sample of your work, 25-50 pages, and a stamped, self-addressed envelope, to THE EDITORS / Knopf / 1745 Broadway / New York, NY 10019. It will be reviewed with other unsolicited work. Allow approximately 12 months for a response. Please also be aware that we are unable to accept manuscripts submitted via email.
