To apply for a place, you will need to email your work in advance. Spaces are limited so please submit your work promptly. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 5th April at 6pm.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the agent of your choice in the subject line of your email, including a cover letter, synopsis, and the first three chapters of your novel. If you do not follow these guidelines your work will not be considered.
David H Headley: David is actively seeking well-written stories with strong characters and an original narrative voice across both general and genre fiction with a particular fondness for crime, thrillers, adventure and romance.
Broo Doherty: Broo is currently looking for novels that either put a new spin on the familiar, or take her out of her comfort zone. These could be in any of the following genres: psychological thrillers, crime novels, women’s fiction and literary fiction.
Hannah Sheppard: Hannah is looking for children's fiction from 9+ (in particular ghost stories, and something to make her laugh), YA (especially contemporary or epic feeling romance; something to make her happy cry) and commercial fiction with a killer hook. She'd love to see diverse voices both in terms of author and character.
Natalie Galustian: Natalie is committed to working with new writers and nurturing talent. She is looking for compelling narrative non-fiction, literary fiction, short stories and humour.
Harry Illingworth: Harry is looking for mould-breaking genre fiction with unique voices and concepts; books that can crossover from genre fiction to commercial. This could come in the form of accessible science fiction, epic fantasy and strong, high-concept crime/thrillers.
