Q: How does the publishing process work?
Q: Do you charge a reading fee?
No, we do not.
Q: What does an agent do?
To understand what we do, have a read of this blog from the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook website.
Q: Do you accept submissions of short story collections?
Yes, we do.
Q: I have written more than one book. Can I submit more than one book at the same time?
Please only submit one book to us at a time. This allows us to get back to everyone who submits faster. You are welcome to submit again once you hear back from us.
Q: Could you tell me more about the Association of Authors' Agents?
You can find out more on the Association’s website, here.
Q: Do you offer any internships?
We no longer offer internships, but please take a look at our Jobs page.
Q: How long are children's books?
Children’s books vary greatly in length depending on the age of their target readership. We would suggest thoroughly researching the length of books already out there for your target age group before sending your manuscript to us. Libraries and bookshops are a great place to start.
Q: Do you accept screenplays or poetry submissions?
We are not looking to represent screenwriters or poets, so we do not accept these types of submission.
Q: Do you accept novellas as submissions?
We do consider novellas in principle. However, please bear in mind that the market for novellas is currently extremely limited.
Q: What is a nonfiction proposal?
There are many blogs and other online resources available to teach you how to write book proposals. This post from Jericho Writers is a good start.
Q: Do you endorse and adhere to the publishing industry's commitment to professional behaviour?
We certainly do. You can read the industry-wide commitment here.
