4 UK Agents Seeking Kidlit, Memoirs, Thrillers, Science, Fantasy & More

Here are  four UK literary agents actively expanding their client lists. Hellie Ogden represents fiction, children’s books and non-fiction and enjoys novels with bold storytelling, moving prose and vivid, thought-provoking characters. In non-fiction she is looking for unique personal stories, cookery, lifestyle, and work that has a social following. Samuel Hodder is looking for a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction. Lydia Silver is particularly looking for magical middle grade adventures, funny contemporary stories and YA novels with an unusual voice. Peter Robinson represents both fiction and non-fiction with particular interests in crime, thrillers and historical fiction, together with history and popular science.

Always check the agency website before submitting. Agents may switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements can change.

If these agents don't suit your needs, you can find a comprehensive list of new and established agents seeking clients here: Agents Seeking Clients.

___________________

Hellie Ogden of Janklow and Nesbit (UK)

"I’m incredibly hands on editorially, and I love to help shape a piece of work from the very rough idea through to a polished, original manuscript. So I’m looking for a few special, standout books every year that I can pump my energy into, I keep my list small, and I’m happy to receive manuscripts even when just at a rough stage – that really excites me."

What she is seeking: Hellie represents fiction, children’s books and non-fiction and enjoys novels with bold storytelling, moving prose and vivid, thought-provoking characters. In non-fiction she is looking for unique personal stories, cookery, lifestyle, and work that has a social following with cross-media potential.

How to submit: Please include a covering letter in the body of your email and attach other components in Word format if possible, or as PDFs.  Please send your submission to submissions@janklow.co.uk, including your name, the title of your work and the name of the agent you wish to submit to in the subject line. If you are submitting fiction, you should include a covering letter, synopsis, and either the first three chapters or the first fifty pages, whichever you feel is appropriate. Your covering letter and synopsis should ideally be no longer than a page each. If you are submitting non-fiction, you should include a covering letter, a full outline setting out the aims of each chapter, and if possible a sample chapter. Please title all documents and your email with your full name and the title of your work for ease of reference. Your submission should be double-spaced, size 12 and in a reasonable font.

____________________

Peter Robinson of Rogers, Coleridge & White (UK)

After graduating from Cambridge, Peter joined Waterstone’s and then became an editor at Michael Joseph (Penguin). In 1989, he became a literary agent at Curtis Brown where he was eventually Joint MD of the Book Department. In 2005, he left to set up his own agency, Robinson Literary Agency Ltd, before joining RCW in 2009. He represents a number of internationally bestselling authors including Ian Rankin and Joanne Harris, together with prize-winning non-fiction writers including David Starkey, Steve Jones, David Reynolds and Saul David.

What he is seeking: Peter represents both fiction and non-fiction with particular interests in crime, thrillers and historical fiction, together with history and popular science.

How to submit: Send a query letter and the first three chapters or approximately the first fifty pages of the work to a natural break, and a brief synopsis to Peter's assistant, Matthew Marland at matthewm@rcwlitagency.com

Non-fiction submissions should take the form of a proposal up to twenty pages in length explaining what the work is about and why you are best placed to write it. Material should be in 12 point font, in double-spacing and on one side only of A4 paper.

_____________________


Samuel Hodder of Blake Friedmann Literary (UK)

Samuel graduated in Psychology from University of Warwick, and completed a Masters in Publishing, before working for several years as an editor for psychology research. In 2015 he joined Blake Friedmann in the Contracts and Finance departments and is building his own list of authors.

What he is seeking: Samuel is looking for a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction. In literary and contemporary fiction he loves distinctive voices and complex characters (e.g. Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh), coming-of-age novels, LGBTQI themes, and novels that explore the loss of innocence, desire, deceit, class, or the world of work. In historical fiction, novels so immersive they can show readers a different way of thinking and being: Mary Renault’s novels are favourites. In crime and thrillers, he loves an unusual, evocative setting (e.g. The Axeman’s Jazz by Ray Celestin), but would like to read anything from psychological suspense to the truly macabre.

He also welcomes dystopian and speculative fiction, including fantasy, science-fiction, and the supernatural, where he would like to see novels centred on the characters’ psychological journeys (e.g. the Earthsea novels by Ursula K Le Guin, The Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer, or The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley), but he likes huge, world-building novels too (e.g. Consider Phlebas by Iain M Banks or Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky).

In non-fiction Samuel would like to read: narrative history (political and social), especially British, classical, and ancient history; true historical crime that reads like fiction (e.g. The Suspicions of Dr Whicher by Kate Summerscale); politics, current affairs, and economics; books that make big ideas accessible (e.g. Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall); books on LGBTQI subjects; travel, biography and memoir; nature writing; visual culture; pop culture; popular science; and psychology and personal development.

How to submit: Please include your name and the title of your manuscript in the email subject line, and in both the titles and headings of all attachments (i.e. your synopsis and chapters). Send to: Samuel (samuel[at]blakefriedmann[dot]co[dot]uk) Your submission should consist of three parts: the covering letter (please make this the body of your email), a full synopsis of approx. 500 words, and your first three chapters/10,000 words. With regard to non-fiction, please include your proposal in place of the first three chapters. Submissions should be in .doc or .docx format (not PDF) and should have wide margins and at least 1.5 line spacing, with all pages clearly numbered. If you are using a pseudonym, make sure that your real name and your pseudonym are both on the manuscript, as well as on your letter.

Lydia Silver of Darley Anderson Agency

Lydia has recently joined the Darley Anderson Agency and is looking to build the children’s list.

What she is looking for: With a background in middle grade and YA fiction, Lydia is particularly looking for magical middle grade adventures, funny contemporary stories and YA novels with an unusual voice. She’s also got an eye out for clever, engaging picture books and is developing the non-fiction side of the children’s list. She loves working editorially with writers and is always on the lookout for new talent. Lydia is actively looking for submissions from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, LGBTQ and all other under-represented writers. Please include the hashtag #diversevoices in the subject line of your email when you submit.

How to submit: Send a short synopsis and the first three consecutive chapters together with a query letter to  childrens@darleyanderson.com For picture books please send the full text in a PDF. For illustrators, please send a link to your portfolio or attach examples of your work in PDF form to your email submission.

  6. hello everyone,i am here to share a testimony that changed my life and that of my husband,When I found Dr.ozalogbo I was in desperate need of bringing my ex husband back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 5 years of marriage with no explanation. I contact Dr.ozalogbo through his email and He told me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a reuniting spell to help us get back together again. Shortly after he did his spell, my husband started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr.ozalogbo helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommend Dr.ozalogbo to anyone in need of help. Email: ozalogboshrine@yahoo.com,Call him or add him on whatsapp via: +2348162562991
