Submissions

Submitting fiction work for adults

(By email only)

Please send submissions to fiction@evewhite.co.uk

Please don’t send any general correspondence or questions about submissions to this address: only fiction samples (we are not accepting unsolicited non-fiction submissions). Read this page thoroughly and see our FAQs before making any enquiries.

If you have a query about submitting, send it to the address on our contacts page. However, it is much better just to send a sample.

Please send one email with just one attachment:

The three opening chapters (double line spaced) and a very brief synopsis of the whole plot (no more than 300 words) together in one WORD DOCUMENT. Please do a title page and number the pages in case we decide to print it.

Replies

Please assume that if you have not heard from us within three weeks we have decided not to request the full manuscript.

Phone calls

Like most literary agents, we prefer not to receive enquiries by telephone. This enables us to keep the administration down, giving us time to look at everything that is sent to us. Please read this page and the FAQs carefully before asking us any questions.

Emails

As a twenty-first century literary agency, we insist on being ‘green’ (and saving authors’ money) by asking for email submission. The section above outlines our process.

Please remember that all samples of writing should be sent as attachments, either as a word document. We will not read work sent in on Sky drive or anything else using cloud storage.

Additional Information

For useful hints and tips on submissions take a look at The Eve White Blog.

It is helpful to join a writers’ group in your area. Writers meet to read and discuss each other’s work.
