I am looking for literary and commercial fiction. I am also looking for non-fiction, especially memoir, autobiography, biography, cookery and travel writing. I do not represent science fiction, fantasy, poetry, plays, young adult or children’s books.

The agency receives a high volume of submissions so it is very important that strict adherence is paid to the  guidelines below.


Email submissions
For fiction submissions, please send a covering email introducing your work and any relevant information about yourself. Please put your name and title of the work in the subject header. A synopsis (no more than two pages) and the first three chapters (or approximately 50 pages) of your finished work must be attached separately in Microsoft Word or PDF format. Submissions must be single-sided, 1.5 or double spaced and page numbered. Send to submissions@elisedillsworthagency.com

Postal submissions

Please follow the guidelines above and send to the address below. Please put your email address on your covering letter, or include a return envelope and sufficient postage if you would like your material returned.

Please allow six to eight weeks for a response. Please note that I do not acknowledge receipt. I will always aim to give you a response but I am unable to enter into editorial feedback unless I am interested in representing you.
