Jenny's List

Jenny Brown

My list is currently closed : I’m taking a break from considering new submissions while I catch up with reading. Please check the website for details when my list opens again.

Lucy's List

Lucy Juckes

My list is open again and I am excited to have the opportunity to find new writers and illustrators for children to join our agency. I love writing and illustration that makes you care deeply about the characters, with an immersive and compelling plot. Ideally, but not essentially, you’ll be based in Scotland and in your introductory email you’ll tell me a little about yourself and where your book sits in the market.  I’d love to see a one-line elevator pitch with the hook for your submission.
