Submissions should include a covering letter telling us about yourself and the background to the book. In the case of fiction they should consist of the first three chapters or approximately the first fifty pages of the work to a natural break, and a brief synopsis. Non-fiction submissions should take the form of a proposal up to twenty pages in length explaining what the work is about and why you are best placed to write it.
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Agents who are open to general e-mail submissions indicate so on their individual agent page. We cannot acknowledge receipt of material and nor can we accept responsibility for anything you send us, so please retain a copy of material submitted.
YA and Children’s fiction should be sent direct to the relevant agent, or to email@example.com. We regret that this department cannot undertake to read submissions from the US due to the large volume received. We will try to respond within six to eight weeks of receipt of your material, but please appreciate that this isn’t always possible as we must give priority to the authors we already represent. Please note that we do not represent scripts for theatre, film or television.
