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, youâll be based in Scotland and in your introductory email youâll tell me a little about yourself and where your book sits in the market. Â Iâd love to see a one-line elevator pitch with the hook for your submission.
