In a stunning announcement today, new hybrid literary agency, Foreword Literary, has changed its name to Backword Literary, according to founding partner Laurie McLean.
“We feel that there is a retro trend about to engulf publishing, including a backlash against eBooks, back-talking about digital audio books, and backstabbing in general towards digital publishing,” McLean said. “So we’re embracing that backwards trend, hence the name change.
Backword Literary has changed its corporate policies to focus on printed epic fantasies, Southern multi-generational sagas, Hollywood melodramas and very long drawn-out literary novels.
“Anything overwritten, send it our way,” McLean said.
To submit your 1,000-page-plus manuscripts, Backword will be accepting printed submissions only sent to 123 Main Street, Backword, CA, 12345. Or you can call and speak at length to the Backword agents at 415-123-4567.
