Sometimes wonderful books get missed by agents. So Smart Quill has devised a recommendation service; we call this pre-agenting, and we are a valuable source of materials for literary agents.
If your work is deemed to be of a very high standard, it will be passed to an agent representing fiction or non-fiction, as applicable.
Smart Quill works in conjunction with the following agencies, amongst others: Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency, Eve White, Conville & Walsh, The Ben Illis Agency, Bright Agency, Jo Unwin, Lindsay Literary Agency, Rupert Crew, A M Heath, Abner Stein, Lorella Belli, The Bent Agency, The Blair Partnership, Blake Friedmann, Curtis Brown, DHH Literary Agency, DKW, Dystel & Goderich, Ed Victor, Greene & Heaton, Hardman & Swainson, Janklow & Nesbit, Kingsford Campbell, LBA Books, Lutyens & Rubinstein, MMC Creative, Bath Literary Agency, Marjaq, Sophie Hicks, PFD, Steph Roundmith, Rogers Coleridge & White, United Agents, WME, and Watson, Little.
Where an agent offers representation as a result of a recommendation, Smart Quill takes a finder's fee of 10% of the total advance payable on the first contract offered.
If you would like basic editorial feedback and a judgement as to whether your manuscript is ready for submission, Smart Quill offers an Agent Submission Report. Please use the form to contact us.
