Anne Clark Literary Agency



Please email your submission to


This is what to do! (Please don't phone or email ahead. It's all here!)


1   Type your book title and surname in the email subject line.

2   In the email, tell me briefly about your book and yourself.

3   Paste the following into the email (i.e. not as an attachment):


for fiction, a brief synopsis of the whole plot, followed by the first 3000 words of your book;

for picture books, the complete text of one story;

for non fiction, a short proposal and text for three sample pages.


This is what NOT to do!


1  Please don’t include any images, as this can overload my system.

2  Don’t email the whole manuscript (except for picture books).

3  Please don’t send your book until it’s finished!



And this is what to expect.


1  You'll receive an acknowledgement when your submission arrives.

2  If I am interested in seeing more, I will contact you within four weeks. If you haven't heard from me after four weeks, I'm afraid that means I don't want to take things further.


Submissions which don't follow these guidelines will not be considered. Postal submissions are not accepted and will be recycled.


I look forward to hearing from you!
