LITERARY AGENCY SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

We are currently closed to submissions and will reopen later in the year. Please do not submit your work to us in this time as it will be automatically deleted. We look forward to hearing from you when we reopen.

 
  • As the agency side of our business, this is a commission only service, meaning that there are no upfront charges and payment takes place as part of your publishing deal.

  • We read every submission and respond to everyone with constructive feedback within 12 weeks. This might be slighter longer as of early 2021 due to the volume of submissions and lockdown. 

  • We're open for fiction submissions at the moment across a range of genres. 

  • What we currently don't accept: children's, scripts, non-fiction, poetry, short stories or YA.

  • Please do not just submit to us for feedback. We need a complete manuscript, and we do offer a mentoring service if you need help working on your book. 

  • You are welcome to submit to other agents simultaneously, but let us know if you are signed up by someone else during the submission process. 

  • Please send us a cover email including: about you, the book genre, blurb, inspirations, comparable authors and why yours will stand out. 

    Attach your synopsis (you'll find a useful guide to writing one at Writers & Artists) and first three chapters in the following format:

    • Word document. Arial. 12 point. Double spaced. Numbered pages.

    • Please do not post your manuscript to us.
