Accepts Queries Via...

Snail-Mail: No

E-Mail: Yes

Online Form: No

Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Form rejection in which my name was butchered. I guess I could say at least they tried? But... sort of stabs even harder.

Thank you for your submission and for your interest in DGA. We have now had a chance to read your opening chapters and I am sorry to say that we don't feel it is something that we can offer to represent. I'm really sorry to disappoint but I wish you every success in your search for a suitable agent.

With best wishes,

Patrick, their website now says on the submissions page:

"If you would like to submit your work, please send the first thirty pages, a synopsis and covering letter via email to Sebastian Godwin at"

I don't see anywhere where it says that this is strictly YA, so they may have changed this.

Got this response from the YA address...

Hi Jeffrey - many thanks for your submission. I do think your writing is
strong and the concept very interesting but that said, I don't think I
would be the right agent for you. I only represent a small number of
writers as I'm the film/TV agent for DGA Ltd. so need to be very sure
about everyone I take on. I do wish you all the best in placing your
work with an agent/publisher soon.

All best
