Jenny's List

Jenny Brown

My list is currently closed and I will next consider new submissions in January 2019. I work with writers based in Scotland (though not necessarily writing about Scotland). I am looking for narrative nonfiction (nature/literary memoir/travel), distinctive crime writing and literary fiction.

Lucy's List

Lucy Juckes

My list is currently closed and I will next consider new submissions in January 2019. I represent authors and illustrators for children and young adults - both fiction and non-fiction. I am always particularly pleased to hear from those based in Scotland, but I am mostly hoping to find great storytellers, either through words or pictures..
