If you would like to submit your work to us, please send us your covering letter, within the main body of the email, with a short synopsis and the first 30 pages (as a Word Document) to indicating in the subject line the specific agent who you would like to consider your work.

We try to read every submission, but please note that because of the volume of material we receive, we are unable to reply unless we are interested in reading more.  No material will be held for more than three months, and if you have not heard from us in that time we regretfully will not be offering representation and any submission will then be permanently deleted.

Please note we do not accept self-help, poetry or picture book submissions.


If you are seeking permission to reproduce copyright material, please first check with the publisher of the work, as publishers control anthology and quotation rights in most cases.

If the publisher does not control these rights, then please fill out the permissions form which you can download by clicking here: Aitken-Alexander-Associates-Blank-Permissions-Form-2018. When you have provided all the required information please send the form, via email. to

Please note that permission requests can take up to 12 weeks to process so it is important to apply as far ahead of your deadline as you can, and that our clients reserve the right to refuse permission to reproduce their copyright material.  Each request is judged on a case by case basis, but please be aware that there is a usual minimum fee of £70 (plus VAT where appropriate).
