What You Can Expect From Us

We know that forms like this take time to fill out and we thank you in advance for your commitment and time. We pledge to reply to you within 2-5 business days. Sometimes, due to spam, email can slip through the cracks, so if you haven't heard from us in that timeframe, please be sure to email us a follow-up inquiry.

Most likely, our reply will be a few additional questions or comments related to the information that you sent us. If we believe that you have potential we will ask you to either email us, or mail us, a copy of your work.

Because we know what we are looking for we usually can make a final decision within 2-4 weeks of receiving all your materials.
