    Hi Sooz,

    I’m currently in the throes of drafting query letters for agents. If you are considering writing under a pen name (or some abbreviation of your real name, like only your first name), do you sign off the query letter using that name or should you stick with your full, legal name?

    Thanks so much!

    Oh goodness, Shante! This is quite the pickle, and I honestly have no idea! If you haven’t already done so, I would go to the New Leaf Literary Tumblr Ask and see what they say!

    Thank you! I asked them, and for anyone who’s curious, this was their response:

    I would sign your query however you want an agent to refer to you. Or you could sign your name:

    LEGAL NAME (writing as PEN NAME)
