SUBMISSIONS

Please see our About page so you can send your material to the most appropriate agent. If you're unsure who to submit to, please email submissions@theampersandagency.co.uk

We would like to see your first three chapters, together with a brief outline and some biographical details. We welcome contemporary and historical novels, crime, thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, horror, women’s fiction, commercial non-fiction, sport, history, biography, popular science and current affairs. We don’t accept poetry, self-help books, or stories for young children. 

We only handle scripts for TV and film projects by our established clients, and we won’t consider material by unpublished authors based in the USA. We prefer submissions in digital form, but printed material can be sent to our Registered Address. We don’t normally acknowledge receipt or offer advice on rejected material, nor will we respond unless you include an envelope with stamps that can be used in the UK.

Lastly, if emailing your submission to us you should attach your chapters and outline as word documents as opposed to copying and pasting text into an email. If you copy and paste, our server is likely to reject your submission due to length, and we will not receive your message.

OUR CHARGES 

We take a commission of 15% on UK book rights and 20% on translation rights. On all other rights, such as film, tv, radio, theatre, digital, multi-media, and US book sales we take 15%, unless a specialist sub-agent is involved, in which case we share 20% with them. We do not charge a reading fee.
