ANDLYN. is a literary agency representing authors of fiction and non-fiction.  Initially focusing on content for children, we have now widened our remit to accept material for adults also.

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: submissions@andlyn.co.uk.  We look forward to hearing from you!

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:

This is a small agency and unfortunately, due to the amount of material received, we can no longer commit to a time frame for a response. 

Please be assured all submissions are duly considered, and we shall be in touch should we like to take things further.

If you do not receive a reply, please do not be disheartened and do not give up. This is a subjective business and it's just about finding the right match for you.

We wish you luck with your submission!
