small. selective. successful.

We are a UK-based literary agency representing authors of commercial and literary fiction and non-fiction.

We draw on a century of experience in negotiating publishing contracts, as well as handling rights in our authors’ books for film, tv, theatre, radio, and digital platforms. In a changing landscape we embrace opportunities to find the widest possible audience for our authors across all media and throughout the world.

Translation rights in our clients’ books are handled by The Buckman Agency, a long-established company respected by publishers the world over.

Please see the About and Submissions pages for further details of what we are looking for and how to get in touch.

Note: we do NOT handle poetry, scripts for film, television, or the theatre, short stories, self-help books, or illustrated books for young children.
