Please note: Lauren Gardner is currently on maternity leave and therefore closed to submissions. She returns in April 2025 and, in her absence, please consider sending your submission to another member of the team that represents the same areas.

We are happy to consider most fiction, non-fiction and children’s book proposals – to find out more about our agents and what they are currently looking for, please click here.

Please carefully read our guidelines below before sending your submission.

We specifically do not represent:

  • poetry
  • short stories or novellas

Please do not send submissions addressed for the attention of more than one agent within the agency.

We do understand the time and effort that goes into crafting a submission, but due to the sheer volume we receive each day we are unable to give a further reply unless we want to read or hear more.

If we are interested, you will receive a response within eight to twelve weeks from submission.

If you send hard copy submissions in the post, please provide an email address for all correspondence, or an appropriately stamped and addressed envelope for returns. All hard copy submissions should be sent to:

Suite C, Victory House

The submission of material is done so solely at your own risk. We cannot accept any responsibility for material sent to us, and its subsequent potential loss or damage.


We do not charge a reading fee.
