SUBMISSIONS

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, film/TV scripts or plays. I do not represent young adult or children’s books except for existing authors.

Postal submissions are no longer accepted. Please email elise@elisedillsworthagency.com following the guidelines below.

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 short synopsis 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 double spaced and page numbered.

Non-fiction submissions

Please send a covering email introducing your work and include any relevant professional expertise or credentials to reflect why you are best suited to write the book. Please put your name and title of the work in the subject header. A proposal about the subject and its necessity, a chapter outline and a writing sample (approximately 30 pages) must be attached separately in Word format. Submissions must be double spaced and page numbered.

Please allow eight weeks for a response before sending a reminder. I am afraid 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.

Thank you.
