Book Submissions

How to submit your novel to Curtis Brown Agents...

If you have written a novel or a proposal for a non-fiction book, you can submit your book to us online via our book submissions portal.

If you are submitting a science-fiction or fantasy novel, please use our new submissions engine Brightfount.

Our portal 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. 

When submitting your work you will need to provide the following:

  • Cover Letter
  • Synopsis of up to 1,500 words
  • Sample material of up to 10,000 words


All submissions will be read and responded to within 10-12 weeks, and we are working hard to improve on that response time.

Please note, the book agents are no longer accepting paper or email submissions.
