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

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) 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.
