Howard Literary Agency

Mihoricho 1-16-10


  • Peter Howard

We specialize in writers based in Japan who are seeking publication overseas, but we are happy to receive submissions from any authors writing in English. We represent fiction and nonfiction for both adults and children, though we have a particular interest in books related to Japan and Asia in general.

Submission guidelines

For fiction, we require a full synopsis and the first 30-40 pages of the book. For nonfiction, we prefer a short query letter setting out the concept behind the book, the qualifications of the author, and the likely audience.

Overseas associates

We are currently building up relationships with agencies in the US and the UK, but have no formal associates as yet.

Our authors include Dave Rear, Peter Gardner, Tom Fitzmaurice, Rachel Walsh and Rob Johnson

The agency was founded in 2020
