UK Literary Agents – Some Help from the Writers’ Workshop

The great thing about the internet is that there is so much free content that can help writers and that is accessible to everyone. I wanted to share a great spreadsheet (I know what you’re thinking the words “great” and spreadsheet” aren’t a natural fit, but stay with me) that I found online today. The people at the Writers’ Workshop have put together a list of literary agents in the UK and beside each one have put the kind of submissions they are accepting and some notes. You can download the spreadsheet here. I actually have a very similar spreadsheet that I made myself about 2 years ago using the Writers and Artists’ Handbook. I’m very happy that this time round someone else has done it for me. Anyone can download the spreadsheet, save it to their computer and edit it as they please. So you can use it to keep track of the submissions you make.
Talking of “free things” (a rather tenuous link) Five Stop Story’s July short story competition is now in full swing – find out more on the website.

  1. This is a superb resource – thanks for the link, Ruth. I’ve done this myself – though I usually skip on agents who’re no good to me (non-fiction or childrens specialists) – bit this one is perfect.

    I hope the July Fist Stop Story goes well 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing this Ruth. I’ll keep it on my desktop.

    Good luck with the next Five Stop Story competition.

  3. Wow! An extremely useful resource. Lots of hints on all those fiddly bits like query letters, synopses and presentation, too. Thanks, Ruth and Writers’ Workshop! 🙂 Good Luck with the Five Stop Story comp, Ruth!
