Submission Guidelines

We welcome submissions and you can find out what we are looking for on our Agent pages. All submissions must be sent electronically with your covering letter in the body of your email and your sample pages attached as a Word or PDF document to:

submissions@sophiehicksagency.com


Fiction submissions should include a synopsis, the first three chapters (or approximately 50 pages). Non-fiction submissions should provide a detailed outline and at least one sample chapter of material.

Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, we cannot acknowledge receipt of material and, unfortunately, cannot provide editorial feedback. We read all submissions within 3-4 weeks and while we do our best to respond, this can sometimes be difficult. If you have not heard from us within 3-4 weeks of sending your material, sadly we could not find room on our lists for your work.

 

Please note that we are not currently accepting illustrated books for children.

We do not represent poetry or scripts for theatre, film and television.
