General Guidelines

The Viney Agency represents the needs of its writers across all media, and when we take on new clients we always ensure that there is a good fit between their requirements and our ambitions. We do not accept play or film scripts.

When you email the agency, please keep the content relevant to your writing. Please ensure that you inform us of any previously published work and, specifically for non-fiction, what qualifies you to write about the subject. Please attach a synopsis or summary of your fiction or non-fiction work which should be no longer than one page, together with the first twenty pages of consecutively written sample material. The manuscript/proposal and synopsis should be in Word format and 1.5 or double spaced.

We are always looking for high quality non-fiction, adult and children’s fiction. Non-fiction proposals can be sent to us on outline together with sample material, but for all adult and children’s fiction we require that manuscripts have been completed before submission.

Please let us know if your proposal or manuscript is on submission to other agencies.

The Viney Agency is a member of the Association of Author’s Agents (AAA) and abides by its code of conduct.

    Amberley Lowis

    Literary Agent

    I’m actively building my list and looking for debut commercial, reading group and literary fiction. I love beautifully crafted, evocative and original storytelling. I am also very interested in a broad range of lively and original non-fiction, particularly in the areas of narrative non-fiction, biography, memoir and cookery. I am also developing a children’s and young adult fiction list.
