We are actively looking for new clients and welcome submissions in the following areas: fiction, both commercial and literary; non-fiction, in particular biography, cookery, history, humour, memoir, music, politics, sport and wellbeing and lifestyle; and children’s fiction and non-fiction.
Please look at our agents’ bios and client lists before deciding which of us should receive your work. If we think that it might be better suited to a colleague we will share it with them, so please do not submit to more than one of us. (Submissions that ignore this will not be considered.)
For fiction, please send the first three chapters and a synopsis; for non-fiction, an outline which tells us about your book and why you are best-placed to write it, and some sample writing from it.
Submissions should be emailed directly to the agent. Please do not send manuscripts by post.
We aim to respond to submissions within 6-8 weeks of receipt but regret that it is not always possible to reply to everyone, due to the volume that we receive. We are primarily looking for UK-based writers so if you are submitting from the US, we would expect a reason for wanting an agent here. Please note that we do not handle poetry or screenplays.
Note: Julia Silk and Charlotte Atyeo are currently closed to submissions.
