Electronic submissions greatly preferred.  Please do not send enquiry or query letters without a sample of the actual work, nor advertisements, qualifications, testimonials, or marketing ideas. These are a waste of your time: only the work matters. Hand written or illegible submissions will not be accepted. Elaborate bindings, folders and packaging are unnecessary.

Submissions are confidential and will be safely shredded if they are unable to offer to represent you. Handling and postage costs means that they no longer return manuscripts, nor do they log them on receipt. Nor can they discuss your work with you before you become a client.
