    [Agency] Union Literary

    Does anyone have any experience with this agency?

    http://unionliterary.com/bio/

    I'm wondering if they recently changed their name from something else. My search here came up empty. Thanks.

    Sally Wofford-Girand has been around a long time.

    Union formed in July '12 from a merger of Brick House Literary Agents and Keating Literary.

    Did I read right that they accept full manuscripts in the query???
    If they say you can send either sample pages or a full manuscript, which is the smarter move?

    I'd love to send the full, but is that a bad move?

    If they say you can send the full, I don't seen any downside to including it (unless you have to paste it into the e-mail itself).

    At the least, if they get hooked by the writing, then they can keep reading all the way through to the end.

    I'm also confused by this. They don't specify whether they accept attachments or not... Also, Query Tracker lists a "submissions" email address, but the agency's website doesn't. It just says to direct your query to your agent of choice.

    I have to confess I'm a little stumped as well. In the absence of a direct endorsement of attachments, I always err on the side of pasting into the e-mail...but doing that with a full seems ridiculous.

    I also wish the agent bios were a little more clear in terms of what they are actually seeking, in terms of submissions. A brief sampling of authors they already represent is valuable, but it tells us nothing about what else they would like to see - and "general fiction" is a rather broad category.

    Just checked the website again and it would appear they now specify to send the full as a .doc or .docx attachment (but no PDFs)
