As the largest firm of our kind, we are also the best connected. We have placed our clients with agents in just about every large literary agency in the UK, most of the medium-sized ones and a large number of smaller agencies too.
We also run the annual Festival of Writing, an event so popular with agents that we have to turn away a good number of those who want to come. If that weren't enough, we also run Agent Hunter, the UK's leading online directory of agents - and that means that we're in regular contact with pretty much every agency in the UK.
