Anne Clark Literary Agency

I have been lucky enough to work in children’s books for over twenty years. Before launching the agency, I was a commissioning editor at Piccadilly Press and a commissioning editor/editorial director at Hodder Children’s Books. I cut my editorial teeth in educational publishing, having started my career with a brief spell in marketing, following an English degree at Oxford.


I am looking for top quality books for children and teenagers: picture book texts, younger, middle, teen and YA fiction. Whatever the genre, I’m hoping for stories I can’t put down, characters I can’t forget, and a distinctive and confident voice. I like books which make me laugh and cry, and books which make me think and see things from a new angle.


The Submissions page tells you how to make sure your book gets to my desk.
