Submit your work

Please ensure you have read our submission guidelines and FAQ before completing this form. We do not accept sci-fi or fantasy of any kind, and only take on authors from outside the UK/Ireland in exceptional circumstances. If, after you’ve submitted, you receive a full MS request or offer of representation from another agency, please do let us know by emailing us here.

Also, please take a final moment to make sure your book is the sort of thing our agents are looking for. This Twitter thread is a good start, and we also have agent interviews on our YouTube channel.

The most important thing about submitting your work – after making sure it’s ready (and for novels this means multiple drafts, including a period of distancing to give yourself perspective) – is doing your research, and selecting the right agent(s) for your work. This is not only practical (you need an agent who¬†loves your work, not just your “money-making opportunity”) but essential. Agents may take on two or three new clients through the submissions process a year (from a pool of many thousands). If they don’t absolutely fall in love, they’ll pass, even if your writing is good, even if your idea is marketable.

Thank you for reading this – and if you are about to submit – good luck. Many people dream of being a writer, and we would love to be the people that make that dream a reality.

Very best of wishes,

FBA
