We only accept for consideration those submissions which come
via a literary agent. This decision has been taken in response
to the vast number of unsolicited submissions we have been receiving,
which we simply do not have the time or the manpower to evaluate
We therefore suggest that you try to get taken on by an agent
as they are in the best position to assess your work, send it
to the most appropriate publishers, and negotiate on your behalf
should your work be accepted for publication. Literary agencies
are listed in The Writers'
and Artists' Yearbook, which is published annually by A &
C Black and can be found in all good bookshops and libraries.
Another good source of information is Book
Trust who have details of courses and competitions as well
as tips for submitting your manuscript and getting published.
You may also find The
Literary Consultancy useful for advice and manuscript assessment.
The usual requirement by agents is a synopsis and a few sample
chapters (approximately 50 pages), all typed and double-spaced.
