Just what is an “unsolicited submission,” you say? An unsolicited submission is like a cold call in marketing, where there has been no prior invitation for you to reach out. So unless one of our agents has personally invited you to submit your query or material, likely at a writers’ conference or online pitch contest, it’ll have to wait until mid-January. Note that you’re likely to receive an auto away response during this time, so even if you’ve been invited, I recommend abiding by the deadlines unless the matter is urgent.

Thank you for your patience as we wrap up what has been a record year for Fuse. It’s time for us to dig through the remainder of the submissions, maybe see our families now and then, and get ready to hit the ground running in 2016. And if you’ve been thinking about submitting but just haven’t gotten around to it, better get a moooooove on!
