WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING PICTURE BOOK or ILLUSTRATION SUBMISSIONS.
Andlyn is a literary agency representing both writers and illustrators for the children's/teen market. We welcome picture books, middle grade, young adult and cross-over fiction alongside non-fiction material.
We are actively looking for new talent, and would love to discover stories that will smack us between the eyes and capture our hearts. Simple as that really.
Please send all submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
Early Reader / Middle Grade / Young Adult Fiction
Please send along the first three chapters (or the equivalent) of your novel alongside a one page synopsis. For younger fiction/chapter books send up to 3000 words. If you are an author / illustrator please include related sample illustrations. Links to your website and/or online portfolio(s) should be included if further illustrative work is available for viewing.
Please provide a detailed proposal and market analysis for your project. If this is to be illustrated, please attach a few colour sample PDF illustrations and include links to your relevant website, blog or social accounts.. Please ensure illustration files are of a low enough resolution to be attached to the body of your email.
Illustrators (SUBMISSIONS CURRENTLY CLOSED)
We would like to see a portfolio which best showcases your ability and versatility. Think carefully; include a range of illustrations which vary in composition, subject matter, age-range and/or concept. Also remember, less can mean more! If you have further links to a relevant website, blog and/or social media accounts which allow us to see other examples of your work, please include them in the body of your email.
Picture Books (SUBMISSIONS CURRENTLY CLOSED)
If an author please send up to four finished texts attached to one email. Word or PDF files only.
If you are an author / illustrator please send your story text as a Word or PDF document alongside three or four related colour PDF or JPEG illustration samples. Use a low resolution so as to ensure they can be attached to the body of your email. Also provide links to your website, online portfolio and relevant blog/social media accounts so that we may view examples of other illustrative work, if available.
