Open to submissions but they do warn that their large backlog might lead to longer wait times for a response:

"During the pandemic, we have received an exceptionally high number of submissions. Bearing that in mind, do update us if you receive an offer of representation or publication but, otherwise, please don’t chase for a response. In the past we have endeavoured to reply to everyone but it’s become impossible to do so – we must prioritise existing clients. If you haven’t heard back in 12 weeks, please assume it’s a no."
