I don't think she's actively looking for anything really.

Thank you for getting in touch.

Milly is accepting submissions for non-fiction. There are more details on what she's looking for on our website. Please do not send fiction submissions to her for the time being, as the fiction side of her list is full.

Jo is accepting submissions. For more information about what she is looking for, see her pinned tweet on Twitter @jounwin or follow our Instagram @jounwinagency .

Rachel is accepting submissions. See her profile on our website for more details of what she's looking for, and find her on Twitter @rachelphilippa.

We are currently unable to respond to submissions personally, and will only get in touch if we are asking for a full manuscript, or considering representation.

Do please let us know if things are moving quickly for you (in which case congratulations!) but otherwise please accept our apologies that we are unable to respond to everyone who submits their work to us. If you haven't heard anything from us for over ten weeks, it's unlikely that we are considering offering representation, but do let us know if you are offered representation elsewhere.

Finally, please do bear in mind that this is an incredibly taste-driven business: what one agent adores another may find virtually unreadable. So please don't take silence too personally. There are so many stories of authors who had to approach innumerable agents before they found the one who championed them with all the passion and enthusiasm they deserved.

Thanks very much for your understanding.

With best wishes,

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
