Specialist in children's books and media. Her work ranges from picture books, middle grade fiction and commercial series to ground-breaking illustrated books and innovative non-fiction. She is looking for new and diverse talent. Philippa is open to submissions and says: 'In fiction, I am always looking for new and different voices and for exciting storytelling in both words and pictures – and always searching for those children’s books that will be the classics of the future. In factual, I'd like to see work that is both ground-breaking in its perspectives as well as entertaining and accessible for a children's audience.'

LAW is now The Soho Agency (although queries sent to old email addresses still seem to reach their destination). See

I got an email from Holly Vitow, saying that they now don't take clients outside of the UK,saying "We find that it hinders the vital connection between author and agent due to increased difficulty in arranging meetings and communication."
it was a very nice email, and she offered to hold my work for a month if i wanted to send enough postage to get it mailed back.
