Submission Guidelines

We're one of the few agencies who are happy to read work by new writers. If you would like to submit your work to us in search of representation, visit

Our new online submissions system enables you to find out what our agents are looking for, direct your work to the right person, and send us your work easily and cost-effectively. All submissions will be read and responded to within 6-8 weeks.

Please note, the book agents are no longer accepting paper or email submissions. If you’d like to submit your work to us, go to our website.

Curtis Brown Creative is a radical initiative for new writers. It's the home to our online submissions portal, our writing courses, and the 'new writing room', which offers blogs, writing tips and industry comment.
