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.

Although every effort is made to respond to submissions, if we have not responded within three months please assume that your work is not right for the agency’s list.

Please note we do not accept screenplays, 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.
