on Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity:
Here are four UK agents expanding their client lists.
Mark “Stan” Stanton is always on the lookout for new crime writers. He is actively searching for new novelists and non-fiction projects.
Jamie Cowen is looking for genre fiction of all kinds, including crime, thrillers, SF, fantasy and horror, and all fiction for young adults. He is also looking for sport-related non-fiction, and commercial narrative non-fiction, and is keen to see submissions of all genres from BAME and LGBTQ writers.
Julian Alexander represents fiction and nonfiction of all kinds, from history and medicine, heartwarming memoir, to illustrated books, to edgy detective novels and fast paced thrillers.
John Ash is seeking literary fiction, ambitious fantasy, and anything with a dark vein of humour running through it. On the non-fiction side, he loves to read literary and unusual narrative non-fiction and memoir, and is especially interested in writing on music, cultural history, nature and art.
Always check the agency website and agent bio before submitting. Agents can switch agencies or close their lists, and submission requirements can change.
