Runs agency that agented One Year of Ugly. That agent is not taking submissions; Clare may be but they go through her assistant Darren. British firm.

Received the kindest personalized rejection. Asked that I submit my next my next project for consideration.

NUDGED: 16/07/19. Was going to CNR but it seems Ms Conville has had a change of assistant. Submissions should now be sent to DARREN@cwagency.co.uk rather than Allison DeFrees, who appears to have moved on from that role. Nudged in case my rejection got lost in the post, will update.

Submissions to this agent go through Allison DeFrees, not directly.
