We are always on the look-out for new talent. We focus on fiction, both adult and YA, literary and commercial, and are happy to consider narrative non-fiction. We are looking for strong voices and stories with narrative drive.
We do not handle children's books, genre science-fiction/fantasy, poetry or scripts.
