Susan Yearwood Agency | Representing new and published writers
I represent debut writers who have completed their first manuscript/book proposal. I also look forward to submissions from previously published, unagented writers seeking new representation.
I am looking for accessible literary fiction and commercial fiction with a strong narrative drive. I’m also interested in genre fiction, particularly crime/thriller.
Non-fiction proposals can be varied.
I would like to work with children’s middle grade fiction/YA writers.
I don’t represent poetry, short story collections or sci-fi.
To submit your manuscript to SYA, please send a covering email including contact details, a Word attachment with your story outline and a 30 page extract or a draft book proposal with a 10 page writing sample for non-fiction.
Submissions should have 1.5 line spacing and numbered pages, with text at 12pt.
Please let me know if you are submitting to other agents. I aim to get back to all writers within a month. However, due to the high volume of emails received, I am unable to provide individual feedback unless I would like to represent you.
When you submit your work, please send to:
