UK Children’s Literary Agents – 2013 update

It’s a bit late in the year, I know, but I’ve finally completed updating my list of UK children’s literary agents.  And the good news is that it’s not doom and gloom: more agencies are accepting email submissions, more are accepting picture books and some even have a few more authors on their lists than they did last year.  Were some of them us?  If not, maybe they will be this time next year!

Other changes of note:

  • Darley Anderson now has a dedicated children’s agency with 9 authors.
  • Curtis Brown has gone all Star Trek with a fancy electronic submissions ‘portal’ (see my interview with children’s agent Stephanie Thwaites).
  • The Greenhouse has lost Julia Churchill to AM Heath but gained new agent John Cusick.
  • AM Heath has gone paperless and has a special submissions form, if your eyes can cope with the tiny grey text.
  • Andrew Mann has a new website but  I suspect it is still being worked on as several links were broken.

Remember the golden rules of following any submission instructions to the letter, being ultra-professional and only submitting your very best work.  Good luck.
