We’re a family-run literary agency based in Oxford, specialising in children’s literature from board books for babies up to novels for teenagers. Our particular qualities as an agency are the deliberate smallness of our list – we try not to spread ourselves too thin, for our own and our clients’ sake – and the strength of our editorial work.
We tend to invest a good deal of time in our clients editorially, to help them ensure their stories are as well structured and powerfully told as they can be, before we take them to market. We find that for the most part editors (and other agencies) can’t afford to set the time aside for this often vital stage in a story’s creation. For us, it’s the core of what we do.
