Book submission guidelines

We read every submission we receive and aim to get back to you within eight weeks. However, because we receive a high number of submissions and need to prioritise the work of existing authors, this isn’t always possible. If you haven’t heard back after twelve weeks, then please take this as a pass from the agent you’ve submitted to unless you hear otherwise.

Please carefully read our guidelines below before sending your submission. Information about the type of submissions our agents are looking for can be found on the dedicated agents page. Please note that we only accept submissions via email.

How we accept submissions

You can submit directly via email to one of our agents, and you can find out about their interests here. Please only submit to one agent. Please either email them or their assistant directly. Please note we do not accept submissions via hard copy.

What we are looking for in submissions

Please send us the first three chapters (or around fifty pages) of your novel, as well as a full synopsis and a covering letter, with a brief CV of your writing career, if appropriate. For non-fiction projects, please send a detailed proposal, alongside the covering letter and CV.
