Submission guidelines

Javelin’s mission is to discover great storytellers and to help them tell stories worth remembering. Because we give each of our authors close attention, we are highly selective with the literary projects we accept. As a result, we regrettably have to decline to represent a large number of proposals that have potential, but don’t quite meet our criteria for success. In addition, we represent non-fiction authors only.
