A Message from Margaret Atwood *
Dear readers, publishers, and fellow writers: Here are some guidelines about what Margaret Atwood cannot do:
1. Due to the sheer volume of requests Ms. Atwood receives, for any and all requests, the office requires a minimum of one week’s advance notice.
2. For many, many years, Ms. Atwood has not written blurbs or quotations for other books (See http://www.margaretatwood.ca/book_blurbs.php). The volume of requests was simply too high.
3. Ms. Atwood cannot write an introduction to your book.
4. Advice to writers can be found on this website, in Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing, in Ms. Atwood’s various books of essays, and from time to time, on her Twitter account.
5. For legal reasons, Ms. Atwood cannot read unpublished manuscripts; please do not send your manuscript.
6. Ms. Atwood already gives to a large number of charities and causes; please do not add to the requests.
7. Ms. Atwood can no longer send “Sorry, can’t do it” or “Thank you for the book” replies to solicitations, books sent, or other such items. Please think about the paper, postage, and fuel wasted with each request. Thank you for respecting our planet!
